What I was doing yesterday...
Remember this? I have been working on this McKenna Ryan quilt for two and a half years now. It's all applique, thousands of bits of fabric! Most of the eight blocks have everything top stitched, but there are a few pieces here and there that still need top stitching.
Yesterday I finished the last block and managed to get the sashings on.
Here it is on the floor. It now needs some batting and a piece of backing fabric, and then .... quilting. I hope to hang it on the wall, so will make a hanger for it too. There are still some embellishments to add to it yet, the ducks want beads for eyes, the bird houses need some little wooden beads to join them all, so still a wee way from being finished, but it sure is good to see it being so closed to finished!!! Whew!
