Lovely Eileen. Before you do a total reveal here, have you thought of offering it as a possible project to a magazine?

Its a nice idea though being in print.

I have done the blue, indigo and violet ones now. the yellow and green are pinned ready to stitch and the orange just need their stalks and sashing doing.

I laid the blue end of the spectrum on the settee to see how they look. I'm really pleased with the effect.

I plan to get out in the garden today as the sun is shining and the wind has dropped a bit.

the last of the blocks are complete. I have cut out the wadding and all I have to do now is make the sandwiches, quilt them and then join them. did I say that was all??? oh and bind it. So far I am enjoying doing this quilt.

I have done lots of gardening as well as visiting daughters but I am keeping a tally of the time I am spending on this one.

I have now sandwiched all the blocks and am starting to do some quilting. Each one takes about 40 minutes to do. Nothing too elaborate as I personally find very close quilting makes the quilt not very yielding when used on a bed.

Photos to follow shortly.

I am at the point of trimming and then binding the quilt. Then it is finished.
