Lancaster Quilt - Progress

Last night I chose to work on my
Lancaster Quilt
as part of FNWF and I shared my
journey in Instagram as I went.
Here are the "progress pictures" as posted to Instagram :o)
First up I added the 1.5" brown border all around then
set about cutting triangles.

Then the diamonds

It took me a few "go's" to get points right but they were achieved after
a few errors and assistance from my quick unpick.

Then the first diamond border went on .... yay :o)

Then there were two :o)

Fussy Cut corners for the next two
(still loving having my machine set into the table)

Then there was three.

Ta Da! 
All four borders on.
I have achieved what I set out to do for the night.

I started working on this at about 4pm yesterday and finished
about 11.30 last night.

Next up for this Quilt is another border strip and then some clam shells.
About 150 per side so think they might just wait for another time.
They are all hand pieced :o)

Have a great day,
hugs, Sharon
