You probably thought this was never going to be done (I thought it was never going to get done), it's been dragging on so long!
But I got the top put together on Saturday afternoon. And there was much rejoicing.
Then it was set it out for basting and quilting.
The 'Eternity' signature of Arthur Stace, ready to go on freezer paper:
The freezer paper ironed on, and the main parts pin-basted.
Unfortunately, after trying to quilt on my teeny-tiny Brother E120 (I'd be surprised if the throat is even 7"), I realised that I'd bitten off more than I can chew in trying to quilt it at home. This sucker is a big 'un and I need a longarm quilting machine to get it done. So I asked for another extension and got it. I now have to get in contact with a quilt store that offers a longarm quilting machine for hire (with a class beforehand) so I can get this done. I'm waiting for them to call me back...
Might have to give them another call.
I am very very far behind on these. But with time on my hands (thanks to the completion of the Eternity top), I did two blocks last night.
An improv block, 9.5" x 12.5":
And a 'beach house' block:
I have a feeling the beach house is a little too 'regular house' and not quite enough 'beach'. Oops.
Two down...lots to go!
Swap Day at Material Obsession is coming up on the 8th December, which means I should really get a move on with the quilt I plan to finish for it. Other than the Eternity quilt, I'd like to have something else, a little simpler and more conventionally modern.
We'll see how that goes. :)
What have you been doing this week? Go forth and linky, comment, and partay!
