The centre applique in in place, but the edges are still raw.
I'm not 100% happy with the shapes and colours. But as I don't have all the time on the world, I need to leave it. I still have until the end of next week to do the outter borders applique and sew all the blocks. But now I'm comfortable. Even if I don't get the top completely finished. I can put it together on a table to take a photo and show what stage it is up to (the quilt doesn't need to be finished for it to be entered). I'm still aiming for the top completion though.
