Hello old friend....


In an attempt to tidy up my sewing room, which incidentally didn't go too well, I spied a bag at the back of the cupboard. Inside was a quilt top I made just over 3 years ago. It is a traditional style, and one I chose specifically so I could hand quilt the large blank blocks. Very sadly, this is as far as I got.. Initially because I was after a specific backing which was out of stock. But as I waited, other projects took hold and so stuffed into the little bag it stayed. Maybe I will give up on the hand quilting idea and go with something a little more time efficient? It would seem a shame though, because I just love hand quilting, especially at this time of year. It is rhythmic and therefore relaxing. mmmm..... I think I am talking myself back into the hand quilting..

Enjoy the perfect quilting weather..

Oh yes that is a beauty, I think it would be wonderful to hand quilt. Love it.

Thank you also for your lovely comment regarding my purchased quilt Michelle.

Hi Michelle,

Your quilt is amazing! I know what you mean about hand sewing though-although time consuming, it will always be held close by your young ones knowing that mum sewed each and every one of the stitches. Making family heirlooms is a great motivator!

All the best and look forward to spending all my hard earned cash at Qc very soon!

If it helps any, I have hand-quilting projects in the wings for, oh, centuries now...
