Progress on a quilt

I just want to show you that I made some progress on my Dreamcatcher quilt. The design is by Jan Hassard, and it was started a long time ago, like in 2007 ! I can't believe it's been so long.
Anyway this is for DD2 who is 15 now, and has been waiting for her quilt for 4 years. It does show that I prefer small projects really.
So afer a full day spent with my group sewing, and a bit of time at home, I have finished the borders. The next step is to make a backing. As I have a lot of fabric, but no piece that would be big enough to cover that kind of surface, I will piece the backing. My briefing from DD2 is that she wants equal pieces. I wonder what she is worried about...

There are also all the other projects looking at me and saying "me first". And then all the things you find on the internet that make me want to start them, and the books, magazines...I love it.

It is lovely - I hope your daughter will think is is worth the wait - lol ! I sometimes join 10 inch squares together for a backing and you can make a nice design out of them. Good luck with the quilting x
