Update: Thread-Sucking Quilt

I really must find a name for this quilt...  it's such a lovely thing, but I am afraid I have dubbed it the "thread-sucking quilt"...

you see, I just sew and sew, adding more and more thread, and still it is not finished !!!

But, I will give you an update:  here is the whole piece -  looking more and more finished (forgive the blue marks)



The center medallion is almost completely done.




 And several of the sides are making good progress,
 The filigree corners take forever... and yes, if you are wondering, I have stitched down the green in between each of those little areas...

here's what it looks like stitched down in the green area...
















and one that is not yet done




 oh, there's so much more to do!  But it is fun, fun....

And look at my gorgeous cactus - it has never bloomed before - we have had it four years, and suddenly it put out these gorgeous flowers...

 
Hope everyone is having a great weekend !

Oh my goodness, you are amazing. In my dreams I'm sure I would quilt like you. I'm still trying to get brave and start on mine.

That is already fabulous - another Award-Winner, for sure. And isn't it wonderful when you get "volunteer" plants and surprise blooms?! Too cool.
