Round We Go bom update.

A couple of days ago i figured since the final part of Round We Go was due in i'd better get down to the applique part. :). I'm hoping to get quite a few more done over the weekend before part 12 arrives. I had 44 to applique & have managed 15. This isn't my final layout but it is how they are laid out, black,white, black white, ect. I'm guessing the quilt will fit a single bed. The blocks have been cut at 9" to be cut back to 8-1/2" but i'm thinking i'll just leave it to make the quilt a little bigger & longer. Something to think of as i make the last 4 blocks & finish the applique.
Happy Stitching,

My FNSI started in the morning making binding to go on a quilt the Wonderfully Awesome Fiona had quilted for me & had arrived back Thursday. I then spent most of the evening/afternoon hand stitching the binding down..

A Merry Christmas Garden by Gail Pan. It was a bom i did back in 2014 using all my own fabrics. I knew this quilt was huge but didn't realise how big until i laid it atop my queen bed. It's big!!!
 Love the sparkly thread Fiona used in the border. :)
Beautiful quilting as always. Love it.

Next i pieced a backing for another quilt top for Fiona to quilt for me. No photo's of that as it was quite boring. :)

Next up i thought i'd make up one of the Christmas projects that have been hanging around a few months with the embroidery finished. As i went to cut the border fabrics i realised i couldn't quite finish this one yet as i had to applique leaves & berries to the 4 corners of the border. Borders added, berries & leaves fabric chosen & ironed on I stitched them until bed time. I hoped to have it done by the time Jurassic Park finished but i still have 1-1/2 leaves to go. I'll have to quickly finish them so i can make the hanging up today.
Thankyou once again to the very lovely Wendy for being our hostess. Pop on over to visit Wendy & find the links to who joined in & what projects they worked on.
