Double Wedding Ring update...

This is what 73 melons looks like.

I've been working on them steadily, completing a melon (and sometimes two) everyday.   Once in a while I stop to prepare the pieces and make packs, but there hasn't passed a day that I wasn't working on some aspect of this quilt.

Here's my melons' temporary abode.  Kept safe and dry from tea, a constant clear and present danger in the sewing room.  The pets I don't need to worry about, they know better than to even look in the direction of quilt fabric!

I love making this by hand, and focusing on the process. It takes my mind off the few thousand pieces that are being sewn by hand, one stitch at a time. 

...and yes, I plan on quilting it by hand too.

40 out of 112 to go.  Now that doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Veldhoven 2012

Some impressions of what I saw....

Didn't spend as much time as I normally do there, but then again, there's lots going on at the "homestead" that needs my attention, so priorities, priorities.  Did get some lovely little fat quarters for a new project, to be started as soon as I get this sewing room tydied....

All in all a good visit!
