Default Serenity an Asian panel quilt in progress

Hoo boy, this quilt is taking forever but I am quilting it to death. Here is a little sneak peek. This little sashing strip takes 20 minutes to quilt out. It is only 2.5" x 12".

Each block takes 45 minutes. I have a mix of raw edge applique and sashiko blocks surrounding the panel. This is one of the applique. You can see a little bit of one of the sashiko blocks too. The applique all have pebbling in the background and the sashiko have mctavishing in the background. I spritzed the crayola washable marker to see if that would remove enough to see the quilting the blue will wash out when I finally finish and wash the quilt.

I already ditched the whole quilt and did all my quilting with invisifil (the panel, which you can't see and all the applique blocks). Now I am on to the glide thread which is all the sashiko blocks sashing and border. I already have 37 1/2 hours into this quilt and suspect I will easily have another 30 hours of quilting before it is done.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
