I have only managed a little bit of progress on the quilt for this week.
I had fully intended to have this quilt finished by now, but you know how life sometimes has other ideas - well this week LIFE has intervened yet again.
My poor little miniature Jack Russell managed to get a sharp pointy object (probably a stick or bramble) pierce one of his eyes.
I have visited the vet with him almost everyday during the week, and we are desperately trying to save his eyesight (and his eye), but it does not look good at the moment.
He's on pain killing injections & tablets, antibiotics, and eyedrops.
A rather poorly little boy feeling very sorry for himself and needing lots of TLC.
But, on to the stitching for this week.
All 16 blocks are sewn together.
This week I'm hoping to get the white border on, and the backing, and if I have any time left I might start the thin black binding.
I haven't decided how to join front and back together yet.
The options so far are:
- Tie with threads in corner of blocks.
- Quilt along the seams.
- Randomly stitch with hidden stitches.
Any other suggestions most welcome
