Busy times mean that the only way I was going to make some progress with the quilt was to 'seize the day' when I found myself awake at five am and get on with it in the lovely calm of the early morning.
So now the quilt looks like this...
There are a couple of bits I would do differently next time, such as trying not to use the strips with the obvious stripe to them.
Next stop, borders.
Not much chance of that this weekend though, as we have a kitchen to fit in the flat my step-daughter is moving into. Mr U-t-B is very confident that it will go smoothly, but with the discovery late last night that the boiler is leaking, I think we may be held up by that needing sorting (replacing?) And if it does need to be replaced, it will mean that my design could have been much more straightforward, as we would put the boiler in a more suitable place to free up floor space.
