I was able to finish sewing one side yesterday. It took longer than I expected (this is the usual, not the exception) but that is OK. I would rather do a good job and make everything neat than rush through things and know I haven't done my best.
Here is a pic of yesterdays work. I was going to leave some of the leaves a little looser but decided to sew around all the flowers and leaves so they were attached well since the quilt may be going to Ireland.
