Yesterday, I chained myself to my Bernina and finished 84 sashing sections, 49 nine-patch blocks, 3 new blocks........and a partridge in a pear tree! Yes, I am going a bit bonkers trying to get this quilt finished.
I'm making four blocks out of the leftover fabric to fill in the appliqued area. This block is called Coronation and I love the way it turned out about 10 o'clock last night. I'm using up every little scrap of fabric I can find. I have to cobble one more together....that could be challenging as I only have tiny pieces left.
For whatever reason, (I'm not sure why), I skipped making an additional Broken Star block.
I also had to make another Mosaic Variation. Now, I'm down to the final two blocks.
I'm renaming this to quiltus gigantus. I have to pull out my kitchen step stool to get a picture of this mammoth quilt! Zinnie has been tip toeing around this quilt all week and she hasn't run off with a block in her mouth yet! She zipped across it only once when she ran to the window to check out the five deer walking through HER yard.
I ordered Baptist Fan groovy boards for my Handi Quilter. I've never used groovy boards before, but I think an elegant all-over design is just what this quilt needs. I'll have to practice first to see how it goes before I start in on this big boy!
Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. It is time to chain myself to the Bernina again and get this quilt together.
