Today is the last day of September,can't believe how fast the year is going. Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on a quilt top. Doing about 15 minutes at a time. It has been one of those quilts you have to pin and pin and pin. Who said jelly rolls make quick quilts?
There is still a small border to go on yet. The pattern came from one of the Jelly Roll quilt books which I borrowed from the local library. I used the Jelly Roll I had won earlier on in the year for OPAM (One Project a Month) The lime green is from the one I got at Good Sammy's. I think there is only scraps/strips of it left now.The big plan is to have it finished by the end of the year. I am thinking about hand quilting it. Though those plans could change.
The above is taken from my blog posting on September 30th 2011.
Well, I didn't quite get it done when I said I would but I did hand quilt it.I started the hand quilting on Wednesday 16th October and finished on Wednesday 13th November, putting on the binding over two days finishing up Friday afternoon 15th November 2013.
I did find a wonderful fuss free method for joining the binding. I usually join on the bias but found a much simper method than what I was using. It worked the first time which was great. Thanks to Edna I will be using this method from now on.
