Near-Flimsy Status

I am so near to having Elizabeth in the flimsy stage that I can hardly stop to write this post. Just three more seams will see a completion, and you should look for the big reveal on Tuesday. I already have a post ready for Monday, so waiting until Tuesday will have to do.

These four diagonal rows are ready to attach to the long center diagonal rows. In my mind, I have this identified as the top right, but since it's going to end up as a square quilt that will be irrelevant after it's all sewn together.

Here are five rows that will be the lower left side of the center rows. I am taking the time to be careful about how this comes together - I am pressing seams open and pressing everything before connecting any parts. I am also pinning everything. All this has taken quite a bit of extra time, but I am mostly pleased with how the top is coming together; I suspect I will be convinced in the end that all this extra fussing will have been worth it.

On the design wall (which I did not photograph) has the three middle rows. One seam is needed to complete that section, then these two outer parts will be attached. And VOILA! This reveal will be ready to greet the world!

Because I have pinned everything today, I feel like it has indeed been a Slow Sunday of Stitching, so I am linking up with Kathy's weekly link party.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
