OOPS

I have finished piecing all the stars on the Di Ford Mystery quilt.I have 5 1/2 appliqued down, only another 30 1/2 to go..... But they do look pretty don't they.  (They are not as bright as they show in this photo).


And as hard as I might try to rush this along, it just will take as long as it takes. I am guessing/hoping it will move along a lot faster when this centre square is finished. I think it is just over 40" square. And even when I have finished all the little filled in grid, I will still have the leaves and flowers to do. INSANE amount of quilting. I hope the 7.5K of the cream thread will be enough.... I had planned on sending it to Qults UK in May but it seems I have missed the entry deadline. In a way I feel relieved, I cannot rush it.

George is getting more than a little fed up with me moving him around and off the quilt I am working on and has taken himself of to this little one mounted on a canvas. I don't know why he gets a devilish look when the camera is arround....

  2. Sally your wee stars do look lovely and OHHHHHHH that centre quilting is incredible, wow I'm lost for words, it reminds me of the beautiful Walsh whole cloth quilts of years gone by. Thanks so much for sharing, what joy it gives me to see your quilting. Cheers Glenda

  3. Sally your stars look great and your machine quilting is fabulous. What a shame I won't see it at Quilts UK. Perhaps Birmingham in August? It deserves to be seen in that arena.

  6. Yes, they do look so wonderful Sally and as always, your quilting is looking just superb.

    I'm torn over shows -I used to always be in a rush to make deadlines, but then I just kind of 'got over' shows. But then, without a deadline many of my quilts turn into WIPS. And now I'm currently racing to finish Lily Rose at breakneck speed and wondering WHY did I do this? I'm my worst enemy when it comes to working at a steady pace. I can't do it.
