I'm definitely making progress, but it's s-l-o-w. It's probably not really, it's just that I'm not used to doing applique - which obviously takes a whole lot more time that machine piecing. :)
I'm beginning to be able to "see" the quilt in my mind and have an idea of what it will look like when it's finished and I like it!! At this point, the vines and a leaf and flowers are just pinned on the border. I've still got some re-positioning to do before I'm ready to sew it down, and lots more flowers, flower petals, and leaves to make.
I actually went ahead and made a few of the blocks that comprise the next three borders so I would have a better idea of the fabrics I need to be selecting. Those little churn dash blocks are only 3" finished... whew! :)
It's really been a challenge for me - I'm definitely out of my "comfort zone" on this one and it's absolutely wonderful! This is going to be a quilt I treasure.
Linking up with Sharon and Jess for the QAL.
