All sashed up

When I came to work this morning I was met at the main entrence by the janitor and security; saying that there was no electricity in the building, and that it wasn't expected back untill between four and ten tonight. Needless to say nothing much to do there, so I went home again and had a half efficient work day on my lap top, an early dinner, and finishing touches on the sashings for my SBS:

While doing the sashings I really have seen that my skill have improved over the time I have worked on this, and it's rather fun to see :o) Unfortunately was some of the early blocks so poorly made that they were impossible to make them fit, and I had to do them over; I have ripped out stitches and re-made five blocks - not too bad out of 140.

Next will be the the borders - they will probably take quite some time to do. And I need to work on some small projects for a while - my arms and shoulders need a rest (they ache like mad at the moment), and my sanity need to see something get finished within reasonable time *lol* Perfect for this will be the project for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap, and I thing I will start thinking of what to make for Chookyblue's Christmas Swap! I'm signed up! Are you? :)

Sincerely,
Anne Ida

That is an awesome quilt. And it's finished. I think so many people start a quilt like that and give up after a few blocks. You've got tenacity!

WOW! Such a lot of work! I wish you good luck with the borders, but it's good to work on some smaller projects first!
I'm working on the DJ at the moment, but when I finish it (in about 2,5 years :o)), I would like to make the SBS.
