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!
Hand Quilt Along Links
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 also be linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday, please follow the link for lots more hand stitched inspiration.
