My Magnum Opus

As I mentioned, I’m working on what I’ve been calling my magnum opus.  I’m hand quilting it and it’s a LOT of hand quilting to do, stars and written messages.  It’s a gift so I won’t be showing you pictures any time soon, but I want to keep a record of how I’m progressing with the quilting anyway, so I’ve decided to post every Wednesday and detail what I’ve quilting in the past week.  I have an idea of how much I need to quilt each week to get it done (plus bind it, plus my other projects), and I think I’m making good progress so far.

In the last week or so I’ve quilted 20 stars and six words!  It’s the words that will take me the most time.  My friend A told me I was being too ambitious and I cut down how many messages I would quilt, but it’s still a tall order.

Stay tuned next week to find out how much progress I’ve made!
