WIP Wednesday

I thought it was time for an update on my Midnight at the Oasis quilt.  I haven't really been keeping up with the QAL but I have made a start on the fourth border.

Midnight at the Oasis quilt - flower border in progress 

There aren't too many green sprouts in autumn - you're more likely to see bare branches and maybe the last of the blossoms.  You might also spot some mushrooms sprouting up in the undergrowth.

I'm blanket stitching all the shapes in place - the orange peel border started an addiction to this kind of handwork - and it's very relaxing.  The bias strip is currently held in place by my new favourite notion - appliqué glue.  I was intending to machine stitch the bias strip in place, but actually now I think I'll blanket stitch them too.

It's so wonderful seeing all the different versions of this quilt as people work on it - make sure you check out the flickr group for all the gorgeousness.

That's the way with quilt-alongs... it always seems you are rushing to catch up! I really love your colours for this one (and was sorely tempted to join in after seeing yours, but managed to resist the urge).

I can't imagine what "keeping up with" might look like - what you've got going is spectacular

Your MATO looks gorgeous Adrianne - I am stalled at the flowers on the vines bit - inspiration has deserted me all week but I now think I know how I want to tackle it so will get this round finished this weekend hopefully.
