Our last posting for the 2022 year, and I wanted to say thank you to Kathy for hostessing this quilt along.
I have been working on Jane’s Quilt since January 16, 2022. It’s coming up on a year and I feel like 2023 will see her finished possibly. Hand quilting takes time, good lighting and heart. Heart because there is so much love put into this art. When I am quilting, I sometimes find myself drifting into thought and then I realize I have stalled and have just been sitting with nothing getting done. It’s easy to do that with Jane’s quilt as it was a gifted heirloom quit top filled with so many personal memories. It’s easier to machine quilt and often I think how much quicker it would be to create a machine quilted beauty. Don’t think I haven’t thought that with this 🙂 she is massive and time consuming, thick and heavy and not lending to summer quilting in the heat. Here she is and you can see that the pattern repeats on the back side slung over the fence.
I have been working on the dark colored logs these last 3 weeks and gotten 12 done moving the hoop 1x.
Another hand quilted project I have been working on was a baby quilt for our nephew who is having a boy. You may remember this quilt.
It is finished, gift wrapped and ready for pick up, actually today 🙂
I am wishing you a magical holiday season filled with lots of love and laughter. Wishing you good health and happiness in the year to come.
