Ok. It's not yet a finished quilt.
But when I took the picture at the beginning of April 2018 I had 87 blocks. Right now I have about 160.



Dutch Treat - what's that?

an update concerning needleturn

Tutorial for prepared edge

18 blocks A-G                   method prepared edge

7 blocks A-G                     method Heat'n Bond Lite

the rest of the blocks A-G method needleturn

The blocks H-N                method needleturn

The blocks O-S                 method needleturn

The blocks T-Z and the rest    method needleturn



I laid them on the floor - they don't look like very much. But there are 14x14 = 196 blocks of them. Every single one is handappliqued.



It's not my favourite task to press the seams open...

The difficult decision - which batting should I use? how to quilt it?
It is quite heavy without any batting - the whole top is almost completely made of two layers of fabric and this Shweshwe-indigo is very heavy.
Since it will be a wall hanging, I decided to use no batting at all, I just covered the back with a thin Muslin. And because I was too lazy to quilt each block individually, I just straigthlined the seams with monofilament. Here you can see what I did:



Finally - finished!
