Then I cut out the words and taped them into position on the quilt top. Using a triple stitch and red thread, I slowly stitched it out. I stitched VERY slowly, since there was a lot of pivoting.
There's the top of the centre block. And here is the bottom!
Now back to basting and a lot of stray threads to clean up. As I'm doing it, the vision of some very pretty quilting is coming to mind.
ps - The preschool teacher asked me how many hours it takes to make a quilt. I had no answer for her. I was dumbfounded. It's all I do, so I cannot imagine timing it. Have any of you actually calculated that? And do you count in the hours spent "reverse sewing" ? (Pippa Moore taught me that word.) On this quilt so far, there are about three hours of that! LOL
