Double Wedding Ring update...

This is what 73 melons looks like.


I've been working on them steadily, completing a melon (and sometimes two) everyday.   Once in a while I stop to prepare the pieces and make packs, but there hasn't passed a day that I wasn't working on some aspect of this quilt.


Here's my melons' temporary abode.  Kept safe and dry from tea, a constant clear and present danger in the sewing room.  The pets I don't need to worry about, they know better than to even look in the direction of quilt fabric!


I love making this by hand, and focusing on the process. It takes my mind off the few thousand pieces that are being sewn by hand, one stitch at a time. 


...and yes, I plan on quilting it by hand too.


40 out of 112 to go.  Now that doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Wow! Those are amazing--I am so impressed that they are handstitched--I'd have about 2 done (and they'd be different sizes) :)

Not too bad at all! I call this really good progress, especially since it's hand sewn. The pictures look like you already have enough for a whole quilt.
