Another week of not much blogging but lots and lots of stitching, at least I am keeping up with the challenge. The quilt is finished, now I need to get into pattern writing and cutting instructions for the BOM. The quilt is called Soul Stitches.
Last week I also started another quilt, it is Lancaster by Sue Daley. I picked up the paper piecing kit at Sarah's Sue Daley workshop and have been itching to start stitching but I wanted to get Soul Stitches finished first. As I can't do lots of machine quilting all at once I needed something to stitch at night... that was my excuse and I am sticking to it.
Here is the centre medallion for the quilt. The centre diamond is from some fabric I had in my stash and it just screamed fussy cut. I have basted about 100 clamshell (need 50 for the centre) but will need 300 for the borders. I am joining the clam shells which will form the corners of the centre square it is quite relaxing and I got a heap done in the couple of nights that I have sat down to do it.
Back to Soul Stitches, the Golden Paper was a complete success and is really quite easy to remove there are a few tiny bits in the stitching here and there but they should wash out when I remove the glue baste ( I used a quick spray of glue baste to secure the paper in place the instructions say pin).
Now for the running sheet, the week kinda went like this.
Wednesday: Quilting, Lancaster clam shells
Thursday: Lots and Lots of quilting
Friday: more quilting and more clam shells
Saturday: finished quilting and prepared binding

Head on over to Kate's to see who else met the challenge this week.
