Still plugging away on my Farmer's Wife, I put it on the bed to see how it looked once I had finished the quilting and Cody decided to road test it also, I think it met with his approval as he was quite reluctant to leave the bed after the photo opportunity :)
I managed to work out some quilting for the corners, when I did the borders I didn't even think about the corners, lesson learned as next time I will plan a bit better. I think it took me just over a month to do all the quilting, mainly ditch stitching as I felt there was already plenty to look at on the quilt. As you can see I have started the binding, I joined all the binding strips nicely, but needed three attempts to join up the final ends, first I had too much binding, the next time I twisted the binding, third time was the charm, the striped fabric made it more difficult as I wanted to match the stripes.
The other project I have been working on is the Grandmother's Choice BOW , we are up to the third block now and I'm keeping up although I have yet to piece the block below. I thought I would hand piece the majority of the blocks, it doesn't take long and I find it quite relaxing, once I have chosen all the fabrics and the layout that is :)
Amethyst is the name of the block below, it is last weeks block, hand pieced as well and didn't take too long to make at all.
