Progress and Pinterest

Despite having other things on my mind in the past week, I have found some time to work on construction of the Masterpiece. Not only that, but today has offered a rare opportunity to photograph my progress outdoors:

so far, so good

so far, so good

If your square isn’t there, it means it’s in the pile that I either haven’t bordered yet, or haven’t sewn in! I’ve had some lovely contributions recently (check out the Masterpiece page) and I know that there are squares coming soon from Canada, Australia, Ludlow and Aberystwyth… it sure is a cosmopolitan creation!

I’m also working on a Pinterest board for the project, which you can check out here; but remember, it is a work in progress.

  1. It’s beautiful. And the idea is genius. I’m planning to contribute a square if that’s OK. Please warn us when the deadline is approaching, as I might not be able to do much for a few more weeks. (Pesky all-consuming planet-sized afghan….)

  2. It’s looking amazing, and I’ve been taking a look at the Pinterest board as well. You’re going to need a ‘map’ of the Masterpiece when it’s done, to explain the ideas, sources, materials, etc.

    It’s looking wonderful, and all those very different squares are playing very nicely together. Good to know Easter is the deadline, but since it’s rainy here today I think I’ll sit and embellish the already-knitted square I’ve done so I can get it away to you before the last minute.

  4. Stunning. Congratulations on getting to Pinterest.

  5. That is already stunning. I can see some gorgeous squares there ..apples and flowers. It is coming together beautifully.

  6. WOW! This is truely a labour of love, mostly from you, of course, but also from so many other people. 🙂 how big will it be when you have finished?

    • I keep getting offers of squares, so I think that in the end it will be 9 rows by 7 columns (it’s currently 7 by 5) which would make it about 160x125cm before I’ve done the final border… but it may be bigger because I already have lots of squares that are not stitched in yet and I know of quite a few more on the way.

  7. It’s looking good!

  8. Oh I am enjoying your project. I love seeing the different squares. Tell your friend Linda her square is perfect!

  9. Amazing!

  10. Wonderful!
