Hand Quilt Along: January 2019

It’s been a solid year now since I joined the hand quilt along. Not only that, but my 1 year anniversary since I began this blog to specifically join the hand quilt along.

I have been inspired, encouraged, empowered by each and every one of you! Thank you!

While treasure hunting at out local Goodwill, I picked up this tattered and torn hand pieced quilt top. Then it remained tattered, torn and sad for years at my home.


Because of this ‘Quilt Along’ and you, she is being tranformed…

Along the way she was named ‘Wishing You Good Will’ and steadily each month I have made progress. I had no idea it would take me a year but here I am with 4 of her wedding rings left to stitch and then the border to finish.

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 above.

    This is such a great post. I too am so inspired and uplifted by all of those who are participating. I love visiting their blogs and seeing the progress and projects everyone is working on. I so love that you are repairing this quilt. It’s really going to be nice when it’s done and whoever first made it, would be so happy to know that someone was taking care of it. WordPress wouldn’t let me log in with my personal blog: https://stitchingirlblog.wordpress.com/

      Thank you Connie so much – your thoughts are exactly what keeps me inspired and moving forward. I have been having some odd things with leaving messages and checking on blogs as well…it’s a wordpress hic up blog thing 🙂

    I had no idea you were that close to finishing! I think the finish will be a bit bittersweet–this has been such a meaningful project for you.
