I am writing this at 5am Saturday morning, so apologies if it turns into gobbledegook! We’re visiting family for the weekend, setting off first thing. As I couldn’t sleep I thought I may as well get up and start prepping my fabric to take away!
It’s three weeks since I showed you my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt which I’m now stitching as part of Kathy’s Hand Quilt-a-Long.
I’m a bit behind with my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt but I will hopefully catch up a bit over Christmas. Sarah Fielke, the designer, has just released the final border a couple of weeks early, so I can now just crack on and finish it, though that’s a big ‘just’!!
We’re stitching the rabbit borders over three months, three weeks ago this is where I was…
… one rabbit border side stitched.
I’m now working on the second border which is identical to this one, so I won’t show you a second photo, but I’ve stitched the flower and one rabbit. I’m hoping to get the second rabbit at least stitched this weekend whilst we’re away.
I’ve also started cutting out the other two sides of this border which has sitting rabbits, that’s what I’ve been doing this morning. There’s a big heart on a circle in the centre instead of the flower, I decided to make the circle pale like the moon, so my rabbits can be gazing at the moon!
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
I’ll be linking up with Kathy’s Quilts too (different Kathy!) for Slow Stitching Sunday too, lots of links to inspire you to hand-stitch!
