The Hours # 5 - The last panel has been sewn in

I'm conscious of the fact that I haven't posted for a while because I'm so busy getting everything ready for my degree show so thought I would give you an update of the quilt.  Today is a momentous day because I have just sewn in the final panel.   I've dedicated the last panel to myself in view of all the countless hours I have spent in making the quilt.  It's been a hard slog involving 2 broken needles, countless refills of the bobbin, lots of swearing, pondering, endless cups of tea and coffee, toast and marmite, the Archers and the odd glass of wine here and there to keep my spirits up but I've loved every minute. Still lots to do before my final assessment on Thursday the 24th when it's 'last chance saloon' and the culmination of 3 years hard work.
I hope you'll all be able to come and see my work along with the rest of the 3rd year BA students' work on the 31st May at Solihull College.
