Hand quilting on a Sunday

Well, it has been a little hand quilting each day this week. I have 8 of 18 blocks quilted. I am just outline stitching in all the blocks so far.  This is my Hand Pieced Quilt Along from 2019 I did in scrappy blues and white. I love the color combo. I'm going to try red and white with this years Harmony block.


This is the last block that I finished last night. So fun to stitch these.


My trusty hoop. I have a few other ones but this is the one I prefer. I have a large oval - but I can't get my arms to the middle so it does not work for me. I also have a pvc rectangle one, but I really like this circle one. It is the perfect size for my arms and me. 

Linking up with the other Slow Sunday Stitchers.  I also might have a binding to be stitching down later tonight on my Stashbuster 2020 quilt. That one got machine quilted this week.

It really is fun to see the progress just a little stitching every day makes! I love the blues against the white on this quilt. Your stitching looks so even and perfect!

Thanks for the hoop comments! I was taught to hand quilt using a hoop, but later found I did better without any hoop at all (requires lots of basting, though). Now I'm starting to come back to the practice of using a hoop. Whatever it takes to improve my hand quilting stitches...

I don't have a hoop for hand quilting, so appreciated hearing about your experiences with different ones. Your hand-pieced quilt is looking great - so glad you're making good progress on it!

Nice progress, Deb! Red and white sounds like a good option for this year's QAL. I'll be looking forward to seeing that come together.

Happy stitching time is the best kind of time with needle and thread.

Hand quilting can be so calming. I like the outline quilting. I have a round quilting hoop that I like also.

oh Deb... I LOVE your hand quilting on this quilt! It sings to me soooo much... excited to see this finished and washed and photographed... but this one I wanna reach out and touch NOW! lol
I have a round hoop I enjoy instead of the square pvc one... but I use my frame most of all because it is so convenient once set up.
Have a blessed week and happy stitching!

There is something about a blue and white quilt that always tugs at my heartstrings. Yours is so beautiful, Deb. I am like you, I prefer my round hoops as well and I do have my favorites. I have several ovals, but like you say it is hard to get to some areas to quilt easily. I hope you have a very lovely week and Happy quilting.

I have a similar collection of quilting hoops and use the same one as you...it is just the right fit.
