I've been filling any spare minutes by working on the hand applique on the memorial quilt. The main motif is all attached, and the applique 7/8 complete. Then there's just a small centre diamond to add and applique. Then I have to think about how I'm going to back, quilt and bind it. You'd think I'd have lots of time to think while hand sewing, but it's faster than you'd expect, I'm often doing it in the presence of James and Eleanor, and most of any spare thought capacity inevitably moves onto the family the quilt will be going to.
