Quiltober progress....




Time for a quiltober update.....

47 flowers from a total of 104
17 leaves from a total of 32

and we're not quite half way through October!
It is hard concentrating on just the one project but I am determined to get this quilted. It is enjoyable revisiting each flower and seeing the fabrics one on one. I don't think there is one fabric I didn't enjoy using. 
Then there will be the binding.... that's another story. 
Bindvember perhaps?
Cheers
Marina

ps Alyssa's quilt was very well received and a big surprise.

It is beautiful and that is a lot of quilting to do , all those hexies but it really will be worth it as it is gorgeous!

Karen said...

Very beautiful! Now tell me, is it hard to quilt, as you would be going through an extra layer of fabric (seam) around the edges of the hexagons? As I work on mine, I often think of how I should quilt it.

hmmm I have several quilts that could well fit into Bindvember!!
