Slowly slowly

Something else that has been on my finish along list has be the Jelly Roll half Square Triangle quilt for the shop


The piecing of the blocks I had been doing slowly each time I had a few moments in classes where I could,  finally I got to a point they were ready to put together as a top. 


and then I added a wide border of background fabric, and loaded it up



my intention had been to do a quick all over on this, 
yeah, some of you know that isn't always what the quilt says it wants, 
and I have a habit of ignoring the client brief, on occasion!


I started ...


did some more, and then realized I'm gonna be here for some time! 


So Wednesday I made it to the halfway point


I did a little more last night, so slowly slowly I am chipping away at this one!

I WILL have it off the frame this weekend, 
and then I need to make the binding, I have the strips put to one side, stitch it on by machine and 
slowly, slowly hand stitch the binding down.
But that's for another day!

Silly cookie! But you do elevate lovely quilts to knock-out quilts with your errant "simple stipple"s!!

You are adding that extra something that just takes this up a few more levels.

Not only is it a fabulous top but your quilting is amazing and just tops it off just right!

Oh, love the design! I've had a jelly roll tucked away for far too long. Is there a pattern for the quilt top please?
