Well, the Belles are all finished and ready for some interesting sashing. Hold on gals, the sashing is in progress!
They are all stitched on the same Moda Bella white background, but you wouldn't know it from my quilt cave photography.
The blocks have been trimmed to 8.5 x 8.5 inches in anticipation of my sashing pieces, which will be appliqued and finish to 3 x 8 inches. I have 5 of 17 sashing pieces appliqued, so it won't be long.
I spent 2 hours shoveling new snow from Winter Storm Vulcan...time I could have spent stitching, grumble-grumble. I'm not sure how much Steve shoveled before trying to get to work, but I just shoveled a good 6 inches, much more in the drifted areas.
Now the sun is out and the wind is whipping through the neighborhood. We'll probably be shoveling some of this AGAIN when the wind dies down (it's bad enough the first time...).
