|Red sashing quilted!|
The down side to all these continuous curves was that I didn't take enough breaks and I strained my thumbs from pushing and pulling the fabric. I actually had to rest three days before I could move my right thumb with less pain!
Was I feeling the stress of not being able to quilt??? YES!!! Rest, ice and an acupuncture session helped lessen the pain too. I'm on the mend.

sashing. . .boring!!
Those navy sashings were next. I had decided that I'd use my rulers to quilt two lines in the navy sashing. The problem was that it was too hard to push and it hurt my thumbs way more than I thought that I could bear.

it didn't look great on the next quilt!
After stitching one and half blocks, I decided to remove the stitches and to make a new plan.

Of the 42 blocks; I have quilted 38 so I SHOULD be able to quilt the last four tomorrow!
I didn't work on the binding; but, I did write a draft of the label. The show is now 12 days away. Surely, I can get the binding, sleeve and label stitched in place before the show!
Time will tell!
