Today I had a change of tack as the measurements on the borders I sewed yesterday do not tally up the central block. I think the borders are too long but as this is a block of the month project, I am just waiting for confirmation that I still need them to be this length - if not, there will be a fair amount of unpicking and resewing to do.
So I decided to get on a start on the large applique patterns - oh boy was I in trouble. I had all the various elements glued and sewn and piled up neatly but then I realised that I should have put those elements of each design in separate piles. Still with a very liberal sprinkling of glue I managed to get the main elements of the borders put together.
So in a way it has been a productive weekend. Like most things in life, one's quilting life never runs smoothly but I do have quite a lot to show for it - thankfully.
