Block number 9 is finished!

Good morning everyone,

The last three weeks have whizzed by and it’s time to show you another update of the SAL project that I’m stitching with Claire. It’s a design by Whispered by the Wind called Friendship V Quilt.

My latest block looks like this:

CIMG4051 And the progress so far now looks like this.


The fractional stitches are still driving me up the wall. Thanks to Claire who had the brainwave to suggest we stitch on evenweave rather than aida fabric. All in all, it’s probably worth the effort.

The other crafters in the group are also publishing updates today. They are all doing different but equally gorgeous projects. Kate isn’t updating on the SAL this time but I’m still including a link to her blog because it’s truly amazing!! Please click the names to see what everyone else has been up to.

Claire, Gun, Carole, Alison, Jule, Elizabeth, Wendy, LucyAnn and Kate.

The next update will be on the 29th March 2015.

See you then,

Avis x

  1. Looking great Avis! I dont like fractional stitches either but it’s worth the effort once it’s all done!

  2. I love that block, with the bold diagonal lines. You can see how fiddly it must have been from the close up too. Lovely stitching 🙂

  3. Nice!!! I´m one day late, but posting on my blog today 🙂

  4. Lovely.

  5. Hello Avis. Hope you are fine. I love these stitched patchwork blocks… what will you do with your finished work ? Will it be framed for hangig on the wall?
