Scinteallate #10: first line quilted

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…

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Good to see you getting closer to business as usual but taking it sensibly and slowly.

  4. Looking fabulous. So glad you are on the mend. Take care.

    Glad you’re feeling better, but don’t overdo! Don’t want a recurrence. Quilt looks lovely as always.

  11. 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

    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! 🌟

  13. 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 🙂

    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 hope the extra time off for the fella will help him overcome. Glad to know you’re doing better too!

  17. kathyreeves says:

    Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to do a bit of quilting, hope you are both 100% soon.

    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!
