FNSI... Progress (Midnight at the Oasis)

I've been working on my "Midnight at the Oasis" quilt over the past few weeks and am finally making good progress (even though there was a stage, earlier this week where I was ready to throw in the towel).





I didn't start at the beginning of the pattern - rather, I went straight to step 4 or 5 and worked on my orange peel blocks.

20 little needle turn appliqué blocks, using my fabric scraps. How could I resist?





These were perfect little blocks - just right for evening sewing and which were perfectly portable.

The central medallion was tricky and was unpicked and re-sewed more than once.




Last night, I got my little bias making machine and put it to work, making lots of little green strips for the next section of appliqué.








I foresee a few more evenings of hand sewing this week... and that's just how I like it.
