Having finished hand piecing all of the Halo blocks (yes, already!), and having hand stitched the binding down on the quilt Bonnie made for Stitch Central's quilt drive, I was at a loss for handwork to do in front of the TV at night. I went looking to see what I could find and voila!
These CW snowballs were from a swap prolly fifteen years ago. I remember being smitten with them as I put the quilt together, and made those bazillion tiny HSTs. I christened it "Rhett Butler Slept Here." I knew it wanted to be hand quilted, so I got the cranky machinist (no longer part of my life) to machine baste it and started working on it.
When I unearthed it, I was astonished to discover that the center was entirely quilted and I had made considerable progress on the green innermost border. So last night I settled in with "Mercy Street, Episode One," and actually finished the quilting on that border.
This morning I marked the outer border. Somehow I don't think this is going to take very long at all to complete. My problem will be that some years ago I gave away all of my CWs, so I'm going to have to buy fabric for the binding. Oh, dear!
