It's been a long day today! I decided to get on and attack my quilt while I was feeling brave! You would not believe how long and how much effort it has taken to measure everything umpteen times, cut it, pin it , stitch it back together, trim it and pin together the quilt sandwich! I am totally drained and unfit for anything but I have a great sense of achievement and a quilt ready for quilting. (And a glass of red wine to fortify me!)
I now have to give a lot of thought to how I should quilt it and particularly to the colour of the thread(s) I will use. I think it's going to live on the back of the door for a few days while I recover and think about the next step.
In between working on this quilt I've managed to finish my Journal Quilt for May. Not unsurprisingly it bears a strong similarity to my main project.
I was using this JQ to try out some quilt patterns before I decided to cut up the big quilt so, while I've practised free-machine quilting it hasn't helped me decide on how I'm going to quilt my main piece. Ho hum!
I'm not much of a football supporter but I feel I have to say "Go England!". (Sorry if you're a USA supporter.) If you are a football supporter, enjoy the match!
