I’m back on the case, at last.
I’ve lost nearly 2 weeks through being sick with the flu, so it was time to get cracking. I’d originally planned something a little bit more elaborate for the quilting, but having lost the extra time it would have taken, I’ve reverted to my old favourite, Wavy Lines. It does draw up the block a little, but as I’m quilting them all in the same direction, the drawing up will be proportional across the board. The quilt may be a tiny bit off square (a little taller than it’s wide) but not in a bad way.
And I believe I’ve finalised the layout. I’m happy with the way it looks, it feels balanced.
Now I just have to wait until Monday to carry on quilting 😦 I’ve run out of my favourite basting spray, and the shop’s that’s open today doesn’t stock it. And I’m a little bit weary and wobbly still, so perhaps it’s not such a bad thing.
So, 20% done. Give me till the end of the month…
Looks really good and I was going to ring you tomorrow as it’s been quiet from your end … take it easy and will definitely ring next week xxx
We’re both better than we were, but still coughing like crazy. Poor J has to go back to work on Tuesday. I’d love a chat, look forward to hearing from you.
I’m pleased to hear you are on the mend and the quilt looks wonderful – it is quite something seeing all those bits from so many hands come together. Take care, be well!
I’m working on the well 🙂 The quilt is a little easier… I’ve always loved how such different blocks come together happily, it’s what makes these ovarian cancer quilts incredibly satisfying to assemble.
Good to see you getting closer to business as usual but taking it sensibly and slowly.
The wheeze dictates the terms! There’s no point trying to outsmart it. But it really does feel good to get back to work.
Looking fabulous. So glad you are on the mend. Take care.
I must say it’s a relief, I was beginning to think I’d be feeling terrible forever. And having a goal and a job to do really helps.
Love the layout!
Take care of yourself!
Glad it works for you too 🙂
Glad you’re on the mend, the quilt is looking fabulous 🙂
It’s a start, and having the right layout really helps 🙂
So glad to hear that you both are feeling better. My goodness, that sure was a nasty bug. The quilt is looking beautiful.
It’s a bad bug and I’m grateful it wasn’t worse. It’s a relief to get back to pretty things 🙂
So glad you’re both feeling better! Looking forward to hearing that cough is gone too!
Me too… it’s keeping us both awake, and the Husband’s is especially bad. Still, the rest has resolved, so hopefully this will too.
I’m glad you are starting to at least feel somewhat better. I hope the healing continues!
It’s been a nasty bout, and I’m glad to be on the other side of it. So good to get back to sewing!
Glad you’re feeling better, but don’t overdo! Don’t want a recurrence. Quilt looks lovely as always.
Heaven forbid! It was quite enough the first time round. I have lots of quilty catching up to do, but no point rushing it.
The layout looks spot on. Glad you’re on the way to full recovery – flu is never good, but this year’s strain seems particularly nasty…. 😦 Look after yourself/ves xxx
It is very unpleasant, and to be avoided at all costs. The quilt, on the other hand, is giving me lots of pleasure!
I am glad to hear that you are up and about, Kate. It must have been a dreadful dose of the flu to have knocked you about that much. The quilt is looking lovely ~ scintillating! 🌟
It was a bad bout, but we’re slowly on the mend. The quilt is coming along, more slowly than I’d prefer, but time will fix that!
That quilt is GORGEOUS!!! I like how you placed each square. That sounds like a flu I never want to get. Glad you are beginning recovery. Going to work when you feel that bad is awful. What’s a guy going to do though? We feel bad for him also. You are wise not to push too hard. It will come together better when you feel better.
Well, in fact, a foot was put down, the doctor seen, and he’s got an extension on his sick leave till Saturday, as it appears he now has a nice little chest infection… And I have now got a new can of spray baste, so I can carry on again tomorrow 🙂
Good to hear the doc backed you up and helped out. Keep resting as much as possible. You don’t want a relapse.
No… what I’d really like is for this hacking cough to stop so we can both sleep…
I´m glad to hear you are feeling better! The quilt looks so great!!!!
A little bit better, a little bit of quilting… I hope it’ll be a lot very soon!
It’s awful to be sick but to be sick when you have a deadline looming is even worse. I hope you don’t push too hard. The quilt is just lovely.
I think I’ll be OK, I just had to decide it was OK to do simpler quilting. After all, I’m the *only* quilt police on this project 😉
I hope the extra time off for the fella will help him overcome. Glad to know you’re doing better too!
I hope so too… it’d be downright dangerous to put him behind the wheel of a truck the way he’s coughing right now…
Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to do a bit of quilting, hope you are both 100% soon.
We’re getting there slowly, and I’m enjoying getting back to the sewing room for a bit!
Looks so pretty and fresh, ideal for Summer !
It will a pretty fresh quilt for whoever wins the auction!
The layout is perfect. I know how much goes into placing, replacing, etc. all those blocks. It does look balanced with the star in the middle. Glad you are on the mend!
And the squinting, don’t forget the squinting!
