WIP Wednesday - Week 42 - Labels and the Twin DQS#5

Well I have sewn these labels down and have this quilt all packaged up to send tomorrow for this swap. All done till round 6, which will be when? Who knows, after the fuss and excitment of Christmas is over I hope. I made a twin for the one I am sending off, of course! I can't bear to send anything away without having a twin for me. Pink and a Micheal Miller Floral. Another addition to Milly's bedroom wall.

I was really happy with the quilting on this one. I only quilted on the white, if I sewed really close to the wonky squares, not quite in the ditch, just really close, it sort of made the squares puff out. Cool!

And finally here is this weeks progress photo of the Squid Eye. Nice chunky yellow quilting this week! Two more squares completed, onto the 5th. Not that bad for a girl with a puffy sore finger.

Thank you for all your comments and well wishes about my finger. My GP decided not to cut it off and has put me on antibotics and some presciption only pain killers. Much better already. :)

You are really making great progress on the squid eye quilt :) It'll be done before you know it!
Antibiotics should heal your finger pretty fast, I hope. It was looking very painful :(

I love the doll quilt but I do wish you would stop using highlighter on the squid eye, every time I see it I think you have quilted in that colour thread.

Cascade Lily said...

Glad to hear you didn't lose your finger!

A very colourful fitting end to Spring there Helen!
