I’m making slow but steady progress with the hand quilting of my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt, three weeks ago when I last showed you my quilt this is how far I’d got…
I’d just started the sunflower border quilting. Well I’ve managed at least a couple of evenings of quilting so I’ve made reasonable progress, I’ve now completed two sunflowers and a dresdon flower too, so I’m almost half way round this border. The insides of the Dresden flowers weren’t easy to quilt due to all the extra layers of fabric in seams extra, I ended up stab stitching most of it, so I was quite glad to move onto the next sunflower! I’ve not yet removed all the basting lines, so if you’re wondering what the straight lines are, that will be basting!
When I’m feeling optomistic I look and think there’s only two narrow and one wide border left, when I’m not so positive I look at the size of the rabbit border and wonder when I’ll finally finish this quilt…slow but steady!
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.
