Its been a long time since I have done any blogging!!

I have at last completed the piecing of the Double Wedding ring quilt.

Here is what its up to..

Spread over the queen sized bed..

This is from a few days ago.. with a lot of melons and lines..

This is putting on the second last row... I put the red blanket there to show the wavy sewing line..
I must say the last 4 rows seemed so much easier to put together.. and they went together wonderfully.

and now I have to get some batting ...already have the backing..

So - it will stay like this for a bit now, till I get the 3 layers together..

I now intend to spend a few days practising my quilting, as its a really long time since I have done some...and I have a lot to do now!
So will be working on thread and tensions.. and needles...

and McTavishing... I got Karen's latest book...its great!
