I'm always a bit sad when the last block is done on any quilt, especially when it has been an easily portable project. Irish Circles is far from complete, but the portable phase is just about over. The blocks have to be trimmed and joined, the borders and appliqué added. I really should be doing housework, but took a moment to lay out the blocks and see how they all look together this morning. I don't know why, but I do hand piece the blocks together on this kind of quilt. A crazy waste of time really, but I get a kick out of it being entirely hand sewn. Am I the only person who does this?
Please let me know if you notice anything odd in this layout!
In the meantime, I have gone Dear Jane crazy. I am completely absorbed in my little red blocks which are very easy to prepare, and so easy to choose the fabrics for......and of course very portable.
I'm off to get some cleaning done so I can get back to some sewing. Have a lovely weekend.
