I’m a day late with this post as I got carried away in my sewing room and completely forgot to post! This is my Staying Home quilt which was made from leftovers from my Coming Home quilt during the lockdowns of 2020, I’m now hand quilting it and enjoying the process, even if other projects get in the way sometimes! Three weeks ago I was part way through a second row of blocks…
The row with the cat on was complete, I was working on the one below it…and I’m still working on that row, just got a bit further along.
I’ve quilted the embroidered block on the right with a rainbow and a house on. I kept it simple and quilted round the rainbow and round the outside of the house. I also finished quilted the house nextdoor by adding the windows, these are just quilted and then whip-stitched to make a solid outline.
I’ve started quilting the hearts in the sashing too so I think this row just needs one block quilting and then the sashing. I think I’m making slow but steady progress! Hopefully over Christmas I’ll have a little more time to quilt in the evenings and I’ll have much more to show you in my next post next year!!
