 Alas, I have not done as much stitching as I would have liked but I have made some progress. I have been auditioning fat 1/4s from my stash for the double borders around each angel block. Unfortunately a couple of blocks are too big for fat 1/4s so I need to improvise a bit. However, I have completed 2 blocks and have at least chosen fabrics for most of the blocks. Hopefully, I shall get some more borders sewn on this weekend.

I have nearly completed stitching the final block and have also been continuing with my penny rug but I wanted to do some mindless stitching, something I didn't have to focus on too hard while I have been feeling poorly. I remembered that I had bought a Sashiko panel a few years ago at a quilt fair so I cut each individual block out and started stitching this one.
Thanks for stopping by.
Angel Blessings.
