FNWF May

Last night i joined in Friday Night With Friends hosted by our very lovely hostess Cheryll. I chose to continue working on my coffin quilt as i have been all week.

The first photo is where i was Thursday night
You can see on the bottom left i had 2 coffins sewn for another row. 2nd photo shows i finished that row & started another.
It's nearly wide enough for my bed. Another 2 rows & then i'll start adding coffins at the top to make it the length i need. After that i'll add 4" borders to the sides & it will drape down nicely over the mattress. Sadly for me this means the 1000 coffins i made will not be enough so it will be back to prepping more soon.

Happy Stitching,

oh my goodness Jeanette it's looking wonderful... but yes a bed sized quilt does seem to need more pieces than we estimate.
