The end is in sight and I'm liking what I see so far. All the "pretty things" are being added and what a difference that has made for me. I can't even begin to tell you what a struggle this quilt has been. The only thing that has kept me motivated is seeing pictures of the finished quilt.
I think all of the neighbors are at about the same point in the construction, so take a look and see their almost-finished neighborhoods.
Here's Sandy's. She added her borders and then did the vines so she could get a good placement of her stars. She'll be adding the leaves and berries in the next month.
This one is mine. I chose not to sew the borders onto the top until after I have all the applique finished. I'll then add the corner stars. I don't like doing hand applique with the bulk of the whole quilt in my lap. Just my quirkiness! So, I'll do the side borders and then sew them on so I can get a good placement of the vines in the corners.
Before I send you over to the other construction sites, I wanted to let you know that we have an injured neighbor. Jocelyn fell and broke her wrist last month and had to have surgery. It was an especially bad break and she hasn't been able to sew AT ALL! Can you imagine? I'd go nutzo! So, head on over and wish her a speedy recovery. Take care Jocelyn!
Paulette has some fun show and tell for you so don't miss her post.
And get this...Anna has said that she is going to catch up to us in time for the Grand Finale next month! Do you believe that? Well, stay tuned! Move in day is February 15th!
