I also got hit with a fibromyalgia attack on Thursday, which had me flat on my back on the couch not doing a single thing other than resting. All this to say my slow stitching has been slower than normal. I did get more done on Leo, but this particular border, although I love the way it looks, has lots of little pieces and is quite slow going. The finished effect will be quite worth it, though.
I’m in the process of adding in the little edging scalene triangles. On all of the other three borders of this section, I added them all on after the pieces of the border were sewn into one length. I found that a bit awkward to handle, so I’m trying them as separate blocks instead, and it’s working much better. This will be the way I write it up for the sew along and pattern instructions. I have two more to finish, which I hope to accomplish today, and then I can start sewing the last of this particular border together and then attaching them to the main body of the quilt. My goal is to have them done and attached by the 15th, which gives me a week.
Oh, and the other thing that took up some time this week, much enjoyed time, was celebrating this sweet little girl turning 2 on Friday. How on earth did that happen so fast?!?!?

Happy Birthday, Abbie! I hope you are feeling better soon, Cathy!ReplyDelete
Wow that is large! I love EPP quilts but I hate stitching together the pieces after I baste them. Maybe a large project is the answer Ha HaReplyDelete
Happy Birthday Abbie! I really love that Mariners Compass. The picture made it imperative that I visit your blog. So sorry that you haven't been feeling well. I hope that attack passes quickly.ReplyDelete
How can Abbie be two already? Yikes!ReplyDelete
Hope you're starting to feel more like yourself soon!
I am glad you found an easy solution to add your scalene triangles - good luck with your goals. :)ReplyDelete
