I am making good progress with the new quilt however it will slow down considerably now that I am back at work with only the weekends to work on it as I do not like sewing of a night and besides there is no time frame to finish it so I will take my time and just "enjoy the journey". The next few photos show some of the fabrics that I am using and the various stages. Some of the ladies from the Craft forum may recognise a few of the fabrics as we have been involved in various fabric swaps over the years.
Stage 1 - cutting the fabrics
Stage 2 - putting the black sashing between the three blocks
Stage 3 - shows the black border around a completed block
Stage 4 - on the "wall". I have just put them onto "my wall" - the bed - in whatever stage they happened to be in and not in any order - as you can see I have only "completed" 1 - but I was anxious to see how they were coming together.
I think once I have put the borders around the blocks I will have enough. The fabric that I am using for the outside border - 6" border - is cream with a small allover gold pattern which will pick up the gold in the blocks. I will then put another 2" black border around that to pull it altogether.
