Bumping along gets results :-)

Yes! Autumn Stars is a FINISH!


I really enjoyed the final stage of hand stitching the binding. I found sitting in an armchair manufacturing a finish very restful, in fact it was just what I needed 🙂

My first use of extra wide backing. This is ‘Spiced Pomegranate’ by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass & Co

With reference to my previous post, I am bouncing a little higher with the bumps and obviously it has been beneficial to keep doing stuff even when the little voice in my head is shouting rather loudly, ‘Can’t be bothered’.

I used a walking foot to quilt in-the-ditch around each of the on-point blocks and then quilted lines across the top of the quilt intersecting corners and the centre of each of the Ohio Stars.
The completed quilt – phew!

I have kept to my principles and made a label – another excuse to go sit in that armchair and do some hand stitching as the label needs to be attached to the back of the quilt. And already there are other projects making their way onto the cutting mat…

Very happy to be able to link with Amanda Jean For Finish It Up Friday and with Myra for Finished Or Not Friday.   Incidentally, did you see Amanda Jean’s post sharing information about her new book called ‘No Scrap Left Behind’ to be launched in February 2017? If you’d like a round up of news from quilty blogs you are very welcome to check the links on my Pinterest boards, ‘Pins of the Week‘ or ‘Last Week’s Pins of the Week‘ 🙂

  1. your quilt turned out beautifully, Allison ! The colours are gorgeous and well timed ! Kudos to you for doing that quilting !!! I’m glad you are feeling a little better. You have written about all the adjustments you are trying to get used to at this stage in your life and I have to say that a lot of women go through similar feelings. Be gentle with yourself.
