I was hand quilting the Quilt Square Along blocks I was making with a quilt along with Jo's Country Junction that year. I believe the patterns were a Lori Smith design and I made them with a bundle of Kansas Troubles Fabrics. I did a quilt as you go to connect them all together. Lots of pre-K car line waits for this one!
One of my favorites is still my apple quilt. I think this might have been my second hand quilting project.
Of course... Hugs and Kisses is on the list. This one I love and it lives in my room...when someone doesn't snatch it for snuggling on the couch! This photo shows the quilting better than the finished photo. All those peels were hand applique.
Hand piecing.... another fun thing to occupy your hands. I have made 2 trips by hand... well a 2 inch top waiting for quilting and this 2.5 inch top that is half way quilted on the frame. I really need to get back to this one....
This is the latest hand pieced quilt along that is also in the queue for hand quilting. So many quilts, so little time!
My current project is the baskets. They are all quilted and it is time to move onto the border triangles. I hope to be binding this one next weekend.
I did a lot of binding yesterday for the bow tie finish. It was a 2 Harry Potter movie afternoon and evening.
Of course... the hexagons are all prepped to get appliqued onto their black background. I just have 13 brown and 17 light blue to go on these as I finished off the purple ones this week.
The end is in sight... so exciting. Then the decision... sew them together by hand or machine? I am thinking machine as they are black... and it will get them together quicker. I think this quilt will get colorful thread with the quilting...not sure if it will be all yellow or a mix of colors surrounding each one....
Thanks for reading and a big Thank you to Kathy and all who have encouraged me over the years.
