Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Work in Progress Wednesday

I’m finally back at sewing on my own projects. The backlog of customer quilts that accumulated while my machine was out being repaired are almost all caught up. I think there might be four left that have been here over 3 months. That feels so good to have all of those quilts done. I’m not sure how many there were, and I don’t think I want to know, either.
I’ve been working on Sisters Across the Miles. The centre section of the top is now all sewn together.
 There are a lot of seams in there to match up and then press. Today I started cutting and piecing the borders. The top and bottom border units are done. It’s a blurry picture but it will have to do, for now. I’m taking a break for supper, and then I’ll head back up and finish off the side borders. All that will remain are the corner blocks and then sewing all the borders on. It is so close to being done, which is so very exciting! I’m hoping to get it quilted up within the month, get my son to do some professional photos of it, and then it will be ready for its publishing debut as a pattern!
I’m linking up to The Canadian Needle and Thread Network and to Lorna’s Let’s Bee Social.

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
