I have been plodding away on the cot quilt for the last week and I am now ready to admit that it is actually beginning to take on the form of a quilt. Having said that however, I am still not ready to reveal it all in it's glory. Here is another sneak peak at it though:
Given the problems I have been having with my hands, I am incredibly glad that I decided to machine applique it instead of hand stitching it, or else I don't think it would be anywhere near finished. I still have a fair bit of work to do on it but am hoping that I will get the bulk done over the next couple of days while it is a little bit cooler (especially since I'm hand stitching the binding on).
Today I am going to go and get the backing fabric and try machine quilting the layers together. This is possibly the part that I am most frightened about attempting as it could potentially ruin the whole quilt if I muck it up. Wish me luck!
