Update on the paper piecing

This has been a really slow process, but it's nearly finished now.  I quilted "the quilt" (in the ditch) this morning and it's more or less ready to paint.

You might spot the blue fabric has changed colour to a lighter blue in places. This is because I ran out of the dark blue and had to make do!!  A spot of paint will sort it out; it has the same pattern, so I'm not too bothered.


The colour of the quilt over the sofa has to be knocked back quite a bit with white paint, and the shadows need to be added. This will make more sense of the folds in the fabric caused by the body lying on the quilt.  I can then paint the body properly, and put in the coffee table and contents. About 2/3rds done I think.
