Hand Quilt Along ~ December 2018

I have taken to bed to work on my quilt this month. The shortest of days, and the not so cold (thankfully) days have been perfect for binge watching this and that propped up with Wishing You Good Will on my lap.


I can feel the progress being made and I am anxious to get this part of the quilting process done.


The thought of working on her scalloped edging does have me a bit nervous as I have never worked anything but a straight edge. But deep breaths, I can do this. I used a  king size sheet for my backing but with this quilt top so massive there was one side that overlapped. I took the plunge and actually cut away part of the top – my original plan. It hurt but it was just half a loop and it turned out fine.


What a wonderful way to ring in the new year with Wishing You Good Will and happy healthy projects started and finished in the coming New Year!


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.

    This looks wonderful Sharon. I wouldn’t worry about the scalloped edge, you are going to do just fine. Your stitches, by the way, are beautiful.

    Thank you Bella on the stitches and for the vote of confidence on the scalloped edges, another boundary to push further back.

    I was noticing those stitches too, they are so neat and even, you are making great progress. It must have been wonderful to binge watch something fun and just stitch away, bet you did a mile of thread!

    you had me laughing on a mile of thread, you may be right on that. The only way to get a mile in is binge watching 🙂 Thank you for the encouragement Kathy.
