Closer and closer

If I felt more entitled to devote loads of time to quilting each day, this quilt would be closer to completion. But I don't....and it's not.

Here, though, is a more current photo. It's becoming quite an armful to move around after each addition, so I can only imagine how warm the weight of all this material will be as three layers of love and time and craftsmanship (or, more appropriately: quilt top, batting and backing, and all of those bloody seam allowances) are cemented together with stitching, then finally bound at the edges.

The last time I made a quilt this size was more than a dozen years ago. It was a commissioned piece - predominately teal, with lots of pinks and creams.

I have one more border (just one!) to attach and then it's on to marking and quilting.
