18 blocks are quilted. I have three more of the 9 patch blocks to quilt with the interlocking circles pattern, and the four corner blocks to quilt with the square spiral pattern, which is pretty quick to do. And then it’ll be done.
Amistad is wreaking havoc with my fingers, though… I’m pushing on quite hard because I want to finish the quilting and if possible the binding before we move. It will let me pack up my sewing room with a clear conscience. However, the resulting calluses and holes in my fingers make it a slightly penitential exercise. And because packing’s a dusty, dirty job, I get ingrained dirt in the cracks in my fingers, so all in all, my hands are wreckage!
I’m keeping in my mind’s eye the vision of a large sewing room with a big table I can spread out on, all supplies to hand and the ironing board out of the way so I don’t have to take it down every time I want to get at a shelf. Oh, and the Husband’s visiting chair not in front of my fabric cupboard, having to be moved so I can get in there.
It’s a lovely dream, and in 19 days, it will be coming true!
