It's pieced! It's pieced! It turned out wonderful!
I can't believe how straight it is considering all those little pieces! And I can't believe how heavy it is.
Now it's time to decide on the quilting. I have narrowed it down to two choices - cross hatching through either the dark or light squares or a small meandering stipple.
After a big project I like to give my sewing room a good cleaning
before starting on the next project(s) so I got busy.
In this case I really needed to clean up. I spilled my pins all over a week ago but I was so obsessed with piecing I just kept walking on them.
Warning - graphic pictures below!
I was cleaning under my sewing desk, sitting on the floor when I noticed thread sticking out of the castor feet on my desk chair. I flipped it over...and
After digging out thread, fabric bits, and even a bit of interfacing...
Six feet later I had quite a pile!
I'm not quite finished cleaning but the worst is done. Later today I should be started on my next UFO!
