Hand work Sunday....

Thanks Kathy for doing a linky for hand work Sunday! It was just the thing to prod me into getting my Quilt Square Along Blocks hand quilted. I have never done a quilt as you go quilt before and not much hand quilting. I figured my monthly QSAB would be a good one to try it with.  I got another one done this week














and finished the border on the star quilt as well. I just did a curvy meander in the border.


I think I will pull out the arcs from my last weeks post and redo them a bit farther apart. That should have the quilting spaced more evenly throughout the blocks. That will be what I work on this coming week in the evenings or when watching the kids and I get a few minutes of free time.

  1. Your quilts look great- and I think the quilting is wonderful too. I cannot wait to see all these in a finished quilt. I hope you might considering doing a tutorial when you put them together - I've also never done a quilt as you go! :)

  2. Love both your little quilts. The hand quilting is a nice accent.

  3. Thanks for linking up to the hand work post!
    This is such a great idea! Makes each "project" easier to finish...it just seems so much more manageable than tackling a large quilt.

  4. I made a quilt many, many years ago in the quilt as you go method. And it came apart on the back. I never did it again. I think I did something wrong.

  5. Aren't these quilt squares fun to do! I just finished my fourth one and it is my favorite to date. You're doing great.

  6. OH, look at you hand quilting. Not much of that around any more. I have a quilt as you go quilt in my UFO pile but I am doing it by machine.
    thanks so much for coming by my blog.

  7. Your quilting looks great! I really like the curves that you used in the border of the second block.
