Finally I have managed to attach some of the applique pieces to the background in the Beth Ferrier quilt. It is rather scary to start with the outer borders - one is going to have to make such that all the inside blocks are incredibly accurate but it certainly feels good to have something to show for all the hard work. I did the swags using freezer paper so will have to cut away the background fabric and wet the fabric to remove the paper. All that can wait until tomorrow.
I have done two and have another two to do tomorrow. What a good afternoon's work.
Mind you I still have about 40 narcissus to complete but they are nearly all hand work at the moment so I can do them in the evenings.
