Still Sashing

After working on the green Farmer's Wife mini quilt for Sebastian I felt a twang of guilt for ignoring my full size Farmer. So yesterday I pulled it out an did some more sashing. And again this morning. I got bored of sashing the long rows so I chnaged tack and did the short rows from the opposite corner. Here's how far I've got





Thanks to my glamourous assistant, Teddy Thomas, for holding up the furthest corner.

The next row ready to sash (the bottle of whisky propping up my notebook is not mine!)

And a much smaller pile left to go (that's the back of the block if you struggling to recognise it from the book!)
Of course, my next problem will be picking a backing fabric - If I get it wrong my Mum will never forgive me! Maybe a trip to the show at Harrogate next weekend is in order....

Wow! This is a stunner. Yes the long rows are boring to sew but look what you get :)

Saw your lovely quilt in progress on Flickr. Hurray for getting going on this again. I think once I settle on what color I want for the sashing, I am going to attach them to the blocks as I go at least on two sides anyway. Still have to sew those long rows together but I find it so much easier pre-sashing!
