WIP Wednesday - Week 36 - The Return of the Squid Eye Quilt!

According to my label thingy function, I haven't blogged the Squid Eye Quilt since January this year! Back in WIP Wednesday, week 1. That can't be right? And now it's week 36 of the year.... With my flickr dolls quilt all finished - thank you all for the lovely comments. I got the answer I needed..... - I thought I would take a mini break from the machine and do a bit of work on this quilt. I knew I should rest the hand and arm but I just can't sit on the couch in the evenings and watch telly without doing something, it just doesn't feel right!

So I pulled out the Squid Eye quilt. I don't think I have touched it for a few months, I sometimes take it somewhere like Mother's Group and work on it for an hour. I thought I had ages to go on it but was very pleasantly suprised to find that apart from one square on the border, I have finished all the hand quilting! OMG! Only started back here in November.... So I sewed the binding on.....

And now have it already to hand sew down. I think I may do one little silver row on the black and white near the binding, just one more row around. That may stretch out to November then it will be a year exactly from start to finish.
