Staying Home Quilt HQAL

I feel I’ve made good progress on my Staying Home quilt over the last three weeks ago I was still quilting the second row which has the cat on it, trying to stitch borders as I go along too so I don’t end up at the end with lots of border to quilt…

Well after several evenings stitching I’ve not only finished the cat row but I’ve also made good inroads to the top row. I’m keeping the quilting on the embroidered blocks deliberately simple as I don’t want to detract from the actual embroidery so on the one with a flowery rabbit below I’ve just done a circle within the ring of writing. On the alphabet hare I’ve just gone round the outline of the hare.

So I’m now just over half way, I’ve quilted thirteen out of twenty five blocks with just the house to finish and the dragonfly block at the end to do. Happy days!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Each block must feel like a mini finish, what a great way to keep motivated. Do you keep thinking, oh just one more block?
