On the saris quilt, that is. Yes, we are making progress, but much slower than I had ever anticipated. The center square was already made, and the goal of the most recent work session was to add the borders. One of the saris had a narrow border along one side and a deeper border along the other side. I am not sure why the two photos look so different in color. The first photo is a better representation of the color.
We used the difference in the depth of the border to make the square into a rectangle. When you get to sizes this large for a queen or king size bed, it is ok that the sides are not that much different in length. So here is what we had at the end of Friday…borders attached…all pressed and ready for the next step.
For anyone that recognizes the room where we were working, this beast is spread out on 8 tables pushed together, and still drapes over just a bit.
Next up…sandwiching, hand basting and then machine quilting. We will be quilting on regular machines, and neither of us are pros at free motion quilting, so we are leaning towards something with straight lines that we can do with the walking foot. Suggestions, please!
