I did my usual trick this month with my hand quilt-a-long – Friday evening I suddenly remembered I had a post to write, so I’d better do some quilting! This is why the HQAL is such a motivator for me!! Luckily last night was the Festival of Rembrance on TV so I sat with my OH and quilted whilst I watched.
Three weeks ago I was about half way across the third border…
I’ve now reached the penultimate corner as I’ve more or less finished the third side. I say more or less as I realised I’ve still some marking to do, my ceramic pencil ran out and I need to find my spare leads! In the meantime I cracked on with the very outer border as that doesn’t need marking, I’m over half way on the last side with the diamond border. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter, though too early yet to get out my dancing shoes!
