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.

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!
