It’s that time again – the 3 week update on our hand quilting project. I have been working steady on the ‘T’ quilt for some time. With so many other projects on the table ~ I am so thankful for the accountability to update and post on this project. You keep me on target and moving forward. So before I show you what I have done I just wanted to say……..
Welcome to Bella, Daisy and Connie
I completed 6 more blocks.
Last check in I had completed these 5. I was so happy I had taken the advice of the group and framed in the squares. I love the look of the blocks now.
I have 11 blocks completed of the 16 needed. With 5 left and everything cut out, I know I can have a big end of the year finish and move on to piecing her together.
A quick update on the pink and green baby quilt ~ baby was born on Oct 30th, arriving on Grandpa’s birthday; what a gift 🙂 No name yet – parents have 30 days to decide. I haven’t had the chance to see ‘baby girl’ for myself and gift is still waiting to be given. Soon though!
It’s must be the year of baby quilts because I have another one started. Not in the HQAL but being hand quilted just the same. The pink above was for a nephew, the grey, yellow, turquoise for a granddaughter and her first, Wyatt, born in June and this one below is for another granddaughter expecting her first. I thought I would give you a sneak peak at what I am working on.
I haven’t decided how I am going to put them together but I am leaning towards a very narrow white binding. ‘Mommy’ picked her color choices. Grey and turquoise seem to be very popular right now.
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.
