Lady of the Lake - some progress

I've been making slow but steady progress on the Lady of the Lake quilt.  My iron bit the dust on Sunday. forcing me to run out to buy a new one before I could do any sewing.  I bought a Shark at Target and it seems adequate (not great), but it is lighter than my old iron.  I have been dealing with chronic shoulder pain, so that's a good thing.

Blocks are oriented "on-point" and soon I'll need to decide how I want to treat the outside edges.  I'm leaning toward filing in with HST's in batiks.  We'll see. This has been been a "fly by the seat of my pants" sort of project.  If you have a good idea, let me know!

Besides working on the LOTL blocks, I've been trying to sort out the chaos of my working space.  Here's Axel assisting with organizing my scraps. I think these strips are ideal for a scrappy log cabin.  Actually, I may end up giving these away to lighten the load.

Funny, our iron died about a week ago...I bought a Black & Decker from Wally World. Light, automatic shut off...works well!

Sorry to hear about your shoulder!

The quilt looks fabulous! I'm in awe. Wee-kips loves to play in the scraps too!

The LOTL quilt is coming along wonderfully. I agree that hst's along the outside would look great!
