At LONG last

The sashiko / Mennonite / Polish rollers quilt which has been six years in the making is almost done. I think I’ve done the majority of the work on it in the last 2 months and I am finally stitching by hand the border of the quilt. I can see some parts of this quilt done with abandon, other parts with total patience, at least I’ve made my mitered corners perfectly and finishing the edge in a way that would make my Grandma L proud.
