The Double Reel/ Jacobs Ladder is done and waiting for it's binding.I used Keryn's Square Spiral panto and it turned out very nicely.

I used cotton as the batting, so I wanted it to be quilted fairly densely and evenly.
It actually looks better on the back with all that piecing.
It's fairly straight but not centred, the side borders are slightly different widths. If it was crooked I wouldn't have been happy but on a bed you never see both sides at the same time so what will it matter?


This is the Little Crosses set together, after years of arguing with me about what they wanted to be. Now I have to got through the whole process again as I find out what sort of borders they'll consent to have, but I'm liking it so far.

It's nice and soft and old-looking.

I finished nine more blocks for my unshown project to make a total of twenty.
I now have piles of half square triangles already sewn from my mystery project and a stack of pink and cream HST for a UFO.
I sewed the two complete Flying Crosses blocks and the units for four more,

and then I unpicked the borders on this top that I finished a while ago. I'd never been happy with the width of the navy border, so I bit the bullet and unstitched them. Not that much work, and I'm pleased with it now.

And that's my Marathon,- I got heaps done, and now I'm off to put my feet up. Thanks Judy, it was fun!

WOW, you have really been rocking and rolling this weekend! Great job on all you've accomplished. I love the reversable quilt. I try to make my backs interesting when I can to get a "2 for 1" deal, but I've never used another entire quilt top for the back. That's a great way to whittle down the UFO list.

I'm exhausted just reading what you've accomplished. As always beautiful. Even though I'm not a huge purple fan I love the Stepping Stones Quilt.
