We’re just shy of having everything we need to start assembly.
Lots of squishy mail in the last couple of days. I received a light background block today from Margaret; I’m awaiting one more from Nanette for the background, and then I can assemble it, sandwich and quilt it.
I’m awaiting three square dark border blocks, one from Nanette, one from Sue and one from Lynne, and then I can finish the bottom border. I also received a dark border block today from Margaret which completed the top border, so that one’s good to go.
Nanette sent me these two long border blocks yesterday, which complete the border pieces needed for the left side.
I need to go fabric shopping (oh no!) for a couple of metres to do the border sandwiches; each cornerstone is going to be backed with a different cream fabric, but the bits in between need to have something cream but different from the centre background panel fabric, which I already have.
This shows what it’s looking like right now, but you can see that what I’ve detailed above plugs most of those gaps. It’s feeling a bit strange to finally be talking about assembly and quilting; the timing of this is really preying on my mind because of everything else that’s going on, so I’m getting far more worked up about it than I really need to. There.Is.Time….
A few more days and I can assemble the background. Yay!
