This week, now I've got the swap out of the way, I'm working on some WIPs/UFOs.
The one I really need to get done and out of the house is the Sampler Quilt ( there's a sofa under there somewhere).
This is a huge 120" x 120" and is not for me. To be honest I don't like it and that's why I don't like working on it. Well that and the fact that it hurts my back and shoulders dragging it through my Janome.
I've already quilted all the borders and the pieced blocks.
I just need to do the setting blocks and the plain blocks in the centre.
I've done one side and it takes about 2-3 hours which includes marking time.
I'm using a stencil for these blocks, quilted in a variegated brown and FMQing round the motif in a thread that matches the background. The centre blocks will have a different stencil to be quilted.
Hubby's nights again this week so I can only work on this in the evenings.
In the days I'm still hand stitching the border on Atlantis
I've only got the blue and green to sew down on one border and then it's finished and ready for quilting.
Hopefully by the end of the week they will both be ready for the next stage.
