vine panels with sashing

Finally I have some progress to share of my version of Susan McCord's Vine quilt that I am making with Janet's pattern. It took some time, but I now have my 2 completed panels trimmed and sewn together with the sashing. The panels were not easy to trim as they are so full of applique.



Here you can see the whole thing - so long and skinny. It will take some time to grow this into a full sized top :0)
I just love this project! Only a couple thousand more leaves to go :0) I have only just started panel 3.
I hope to grow my vines more quickly once I finish hand quilting my red and white quilt. With the deadline less than 2 weeks away I need to stay focused only a little while longer.
Happy Quilting!!

Now that's looking very exciting and beautiful. It's going to be an heirloom. I can't wait to see the beautiful red and white quilt.

Wow!!! Beautiful Janet!!! I love how well the sashing fabric goes with your vines.
Very exciting being able to join the panels with the sashing! (I still have a long way to go!)
Have fun finishing the red and white quilt.

How many rows of vine and leaves do you plan on making for your quilt? What you have done looks oh so good.

It's going to be so wonderful when it's finished. The pink sashing really sets the leaves off.

So, are you gonna have your red & white finished for Monday?? :) (I'm not!)

Your vine photos are looking great. Getting the sashing on makes such a difference to how it looks and seems to encourage us to get on with more of it.
