It’s three weeks since I last shared my progress with hand quilting my Staying Home quilt, this was made with fabric left from my Coming Home quilt and embroidered blocks from a QAL by Hugs and Kisses back in 2020 during the lockdowns, hence the title!
Three weeks ago I had finally got into the swing of my chosen pattern, hearts in the sashings and stitch in the ditch mainly for houses…
Well I’ve made steady progress and I’ve finished the row with a cat on it, blocks and sashings top and bottom. I’m now working on the row below, I’m just working on the second house, the central embroidered block is already quilted, so just two more embroidered blocks to do and then the sashing…
…as I said, steady progress, not huge but progress is progress and quilting has slowed down now with Christmas presents to make and party outfits to stitch. Christmas seems to be sneaking up rapidly!
