Last time I posted about Stay+ I just had the top line done.
This time, I’ve got more to show. I’m halfway through! The top line you’ve seen before, but line 2 and the half of line 3 I’ve done are quilted and trimmed. As you can see, the ‘+‘ sign is beginning to emerge.
I’m going to wait till I have all the blocks done before I start to join them up. I learned the hard way with the Time for Teal quilt that joining long strips to long strips was a lot harder and more painful than it needed to be. With the next QAYG project I worked on (Grey Nomad), I joined the blocks into sections, and then joined those. It made life a lot easier, there was a lot less blood floating around as a result of pin sticks, and I didn’t throw it down in fury even once!
I have to cut a bunch of backing fabric squares before I can carry on, but there wasn’t time to get that done today. Soon, I promise. I want to get this off by the end of the month if possible. Which reminds me; I need fabric for binding. Oh dear, a trip to the fabric shop, what a hardship…!
And now it’s time to turn my attention to something completely different. But it’s a secret!
