It keeps growing

14 01 2010

Well, so far I haven’t lost any steam yet on my quilt. It’s slow progress (and I admit I think I had fantasies of being able to whip it up in a few days), but I can see that things are happening and so far I haven’t had too many major dramas.

Last time I had joined quite a number of squares to make some half square triangles and had them lain out. I’ve added to it since then, sewing some rows together and making some more half square triangles.

Here’s a shot of my beautiful seams, all neatly pressed and starched to within an inch of their lives.

The first two rows have been stitched first in strips, then the two rows stitched together, so I have a finished “zig”.

The next two rows have been sewn into strips, but I need to sew these together.

And the next two rows have just had the triangles pieces together but I need to sew each row into strips and together. I just had to lay them out to see what it would all look like!

It’s so satisfying to see progress! I’m running out of time before my holidays are over though. I have a visitor coming soon and since all of this is laid out in my guest room it will all have to be packed up and put away.  Oh, to have a dedicated sewing room!
