Time for the HQAL 3 week update. I have been working on Jane’s quilt but for this posting I am sorry to report I did not put in one stitch. There is a good reason though. At our last posting I had completed the medallion in the middle and made some progress into the lighter areas.
For this posting I wanted to report on the hand quilting I was working on. Back 2 years ago, I had made this baby quilt. A first baby gift for a honorary granddaughter ~ they had a boy!
With 2nd baby boy on the way I needed to get another quilt made. Checking my stash I had enough of the fabric I used on the front to get another quilt done – I could coordinate the two gifts – perfect! (and of course always hand stitched and/or hand quilted) She was easy to make, there was no piecing of blocks, just endless circles which took about 4 weeks.
Here’s the new gift ready for mailing
Now I am off to check in with the others in the hand quilt along. Hopefully you’ll join me, there are some amazing projects in the works to inspire you.
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piercers 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.
