This will be the center piece when a lot of green bias binding and hand appliqued jacobean flowers get on there ,rather than the few pinned on so far (Hopefully to some extent at least, on the two return train journeys I have to London this week.)
Thanks to Dennis for holding it up!
The center is bordered by these foundation pieced blocks ( four of which still need to be made)
alternated with these flower blocks.
There is then an outer border with similar scalloped edges.
To finish it I am going to learn how to long arm quilt on it at the beginning of July.
I started it in January but, whilst it qualifies as slow because so much of it is by hand ( it took a long evening just to sew that bias trim on the curved border edge! - nothing in it is difficult though) I can't say that it has taken six months becuase I have put it aside for so long and done other things. It would be interesting to keep a little notebook with each quilt to note when it was worked on, where and for how long.... but what are the chances of keeping that up?!
Oh and here is Caleb's Quit all ready to go in the post on my way to London. I did a different free motion pattern on each piece of sashing. Thanks again to Dennis for driving an hour each way to the quilt shop and waiting in there for half an hour just so I could get some backing. (And some stash. And some thread. And some free chocolate)
