And so

it continues....I have spent the day wrestling, sewing and pinning...but I am nearly there....seven more pieces to attach on one corner and the a few gaps to fill in on the other end...I can see a faint glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!!

lots to wrestle!!!

A lady at Port Arlington group suggested I get bike clips to keep the spare fabric rolled up, I haven't found a bike shop but had a look at the quilt shop in Gisborne and found these quilt roll clips....had another wrestle to get them on but they are very useful..and keep the quilt on the table!

This is the wonderful gift I received from Ondrea ...I had a message from her saying maybe I should open the present from her not keep it under the tree ( that I still have to put up!!)..so here it all is..a lovely ginge decoration and some coasters for Christmas.  Thank you Ondrea!!
Off to do some more wrestling!!
Happy sewing.

Ondrea said...

Oh my! That quilt does look rather cumbersome! Great idea to roll it up using that gadget. Never seen them before. I bet you have sore arms now.

I'd be interested in seeing if the clips were a help...

its so hard with a big quilt and I hate it when it droops over the table and pulls when sewing. it's looking great though... lovely pressie and nice you can use them now..
