Hand Quilt Along: Wishing You Good Will update

Welcome Gretchen to the Hand Quilt Along! So nice to have you join the group.

Well three weeks passed and I started strong, alternating between my four major projects (way to many for me) I wish I could say I finished strong but I didn’t. I ended up working on the embroidered kitchen tea towels hoping to finish for gift giving on Oct. 4th. I got M-F done, photographed M&T, a part of Wed. then in a rush to get the gift from  WA to NY on time, I forgot to get pictures of the three other days  😦

Gift received on the 4th (amazing) my stepmom loved it! I sent a note that the 2 remaining days would follow and of course we did speak.

So what about Good Will? Dusty tried to insist it wasn’t him that pushed her off the couch after routing around in her wonderful downey softness. I was frantic looking for the needle (found) and I learned a great lesson


Honestly, it wasn’t me


I did manage to move the hoop a few times so I know I made progress. You all know what she looks like so I will say bye for this check in… and happy crafting!


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.

    Hurrah for moving the hoop, that means definite progress! Now that the birthday gift is finished, you won’t have as many projects in the pile.🙂

    So true Kathy- hoop moved = progress and the project pile has dwindled a bit 🙂

    Oh I agree with Dusty that he’s innocent… the needle just decided to take a walk .😀 I love all the dotted fabric in Good Will! If you noticed on my double wedding ring the fabrics are from the same era but I didn’t have many dotted fabrics.

    Hi Deb~ I can’t resist him! The quilt may becomes his in the end. I had noticed your fabrics, it’s very funny were both working with very similar fabrics and pattern. I also neglected to say I love the kind of lazy daisy flower you are doing in the middle of the rings. It looks great! I need to get moving on Good Will!

    Oh, look at that face! Of course he didn’t knock your quilt on the floor! SO glad you got the embroidered towels done in time–that’s a big finish to be proud of. And there’s no rush with Good Will–enjoy the process.
