Some of you may have read in earlier posts that I am making a series of Seven Sisters quilts for my six sisters and of course, me. All seven of these quilts are being sewn by hand and they will all be hand-quilted as well. I have shown bits of my progress on the first quilt - at this point it is called "the green one" and I have almost finished quilting it! I have shown a little bit of progress on "the fuchsia one" that I am currently piecing, and I have also shown the completed flimsy of "the paisley one". This is the first time that I have shown "the blue one".
I have completed all of the blocks and I am currently making and adding the sashing. I had originally chosen a different blue fabric but you know how it goes....lay it down and it gets used for something else! So, last year?? I bought this replacement blue fabric and I really hope it works. In the photos it looks extremely dark but in real life it does look much better. I just finished sewing the sashing to the center blocks and I have cut the sashing for the sides of the outer blocks and a few horizontal pieces as well. A little more cutting, a little more sewing and I will have another finished flimsy ready for basting and quilting! This is definitely a long term project, a labour of love, and I know it is not a project that will be completed overnight.
I have to put it away for another day though because I am going to visit with my sister Glenda today and I really do have to get some chores done before I go!!
