Hand Quilt Along: Wishing You Good Will

17Here we are again with another three weeks for an update on progress. I had set aside Sundays for the day to work on ‘Good Will’ but I think I need to step up my game. 35 of these huge wedding rings to hand quilt. How many have I got done? 9 and you can do the math on how many more to go. Then I need to tackle the border and I haven’t even thought about that. I am rethinking my quilting strategy – my entire crafting strategy and division of time. Perhaps 2 hours a day on the 3 projects I have going might work better. In fact I am going to try that for this interval of 3 weeks. Since I am now retired that just might work. My 3 projects: A counted cross stitch, the stamped Monday – Sunday Tea Towel set and of course Good Will and lets not forget the beautiful tulip quilt patiently waiting her turn. I would love to give her some attention.


I want to welcome Karrin to the HQAL and I am excited to see what everyone has been working on. Please take a moment and take some time to see what everyone else is doing.


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.

      Thank you Deb- she sure is taking some time. Yes, the tulip quilt is an old one that I found at our local goodwill. When I first posted about her I never noticed the green stem ‘imperfection’ or mistake that her piecer had made. She sure is a beauty though.

    I like your strategy, Sharon! When I am in a normal mode, I like to work on all my major projects at least every other day, even if it’s only 20 minutes. That keeps me more motivated. I also have my morning project, lunch time and evening, so I can move around the house! (Now I sound very OCD! 😆) you have a nice variety to work on, good breaks from your new job, Geneology Detective!

    I think that 2 hour thing will work! On these kinds of projects, you’ll be amazed at how much you can do in one hour of steady work. Each of these quilts is so pretty.


I would love to hear from you
