Emily's Quilt...an update...

...Hmmm it's been a while since I got all excited about making a quilt for my eldest...Chapter 1 is here...In the interim period, time and life has passed us by at an astonishingly high speed, we are now 2 months down the line and all I have managed to do is wash the squares of fabric (84 of them)...
 Make a mess doing it...luckily I had the sense to bag the squares in an old pillowcase before popping them in the machine!!
However, the temporary stitches I put through them to hold the rows in their order (which I thought was a great idea) didn't work, so I now have 84 separate charm squares once more...!! At least I took a photo of the order they were in before washing!!
So my next jobs are trimming all the threads that are hanging from the squares and re-ordering the rows before starting to join them...hopefully next week will give me a few moments to crack on with it...don't give up on me...keep watching...this UFO will not get the better of me!!
