I devoted a little time to this quilt this evening, hand quilting the sashing that makes a V toward the edges. (The sashing's not quilted in this photo because I'd just moved the hoop.) It's a peaceful activity on a Sunday evening when sitting with family.
I have just 8 half-blocks on the ends left to quilt. They are pieced so the grain parallels the edges of the quilt, and they are more than half-blocks -- almost five-eighths blocks. I'm thinking of cutting the blocks on the ends so they're closer to half blocks, thereby making the quilt a little shorter. (This is another quilt that's too long -- because I chose symmetry over size.)
I've been quilting this since the end of November. Am I slow, or what?! It's no wonder I finish about two quilts per year. Still, no stress, no hurry. I'd rather enjoy the process than speed quilt just to claim more finishes in a year.
I hope you've had a little quiet time today to relax and rejuvenate.
