Progress on the old UFO

Not much sewing during the week at the moment unfortunately. But I received my last 2 blocks to be able to finish my batik stars top!
I grabbed the stars almost as soon as they arrived to add them to my final row. Of course I had to unpick one of the row that I added to the wrong end of my top (and I hate unpicking!)

But now I am so proud that the centre of the quilt is FINISHED - 8 years after it was first started. This was my challenge for the Lazy Bums for August, probably why I picked it and felt comply to work on it!

Now it needs a border, some quilting and a binding. Hoping this will not take another 8 years ;-) Nicki has challenged me to finish it by Christmas, let's see if I can meet her challenge!

  2. Your blue star quilt is absolutely gorgeous!!! It mesmerizes me and I just want to keep looking at it (I guess they call that eye candy)!
