update on quilt

 I have been working on my quilts since I last posted about them but there has been a huge break in between with a sick mum and a few wedding dresses.
I now have the quilt stitched together with a bamboo wadding and backing and it is ready for the folded bias edging to be applied by hand.
I was tempted to try applying the bias edging with the aid of my new Evolve over locker but my Mum says "no, it has to be applied by hand sewing". The over locker would do it very quickly and neatly as I had a practice yesterday. It would have to sewn using a chain stitch or cover stitch and that is not acceptable to my patch working Mum as you can see the stitching.
