Ta-da!

I have been busy for the past few months but have not been posting individual blocks. I have all of them done and sewn together. I have just started work on my borders. I love this quilt so much I know I will be sad to be done. Long way to go yet!

  4. Oooh, lucky you!! It looks so good! Do you feel like you are 'done'? I wonder how much work the borders are, compared to the blocks... Keep us updated, please. And congratulations!

  5. Wow Celia, it looks great! Just finished the blocks as well. I think we are going to finish together as well. Though I am getting slower towards the end. I am just going to outline the figures in my quilt. I don't know why but I have little free space then in yours. How is the original quilted? the one from Corliss? Are you making the borders according the pattern or more like the antique one? Keep up the good work!

  6. That is lovely, the finished tops are all so different. You must be so proud, well done, I too wonder how much work is in the borders compared to this, as I only have 2 blocks left to do, will have to hurry to catch you and Ineke.

  7. Woohoo! Almost there! Congratulations on this work of art! If the borders turn out as pretty as the blocks (and why wouldn't they?!), you'll have a gorgeous quilt. Happy quilting!
