I have made about 60 blocks which will measure 7 1/2" when joined up.
I don't know how big to go?
8 X 8 or 7 X 9?

While at my watercolour workshop earlier this week I managed to sew the binding on a quilt and make another pincushion.
Not so sure at showing my painting efforts but they are over on my Instagram.

All finished now but still hard to capture the dark, dark blue.
Maybe this last one is most like the real blue but can you see it?
I just love these old japanese indigos.

So if you have been following along give yourself a bit pat on the back
we have walked 465 kilometres (at least)
come rain, wind or shine
on slab paths and knee deep sucking mud
up and down over 13,000 metres.
