Had a lovely time in my sewing room (i.e. corner of the bonus room) piecing together more of my Irish chain quilt.
This will be a twin size quilt. Fabric is Marmalade.
I assemble in pieces - last night I finished the assembly of the 4 block x 4 block larger squares. I'll then press those, square them up and then start assembling the quilt top. Doing it this way - as opposed to long rows of single blocks - is a very manageable way to assemble a large quilt. I also add a line of stay stitching around the edge to prevent seams from opening.
I've a date with my LAQ in 2 weeks so this will get done in time.
I also did a bit more work to get ready for the Holiday Lane blog hop - my day is November 27th! No spoiler pictures though.
