Back in April and again in May I had shown some peeks at the quilt that I have been working on here and there since 2004. Wow, does time fly when you are having fun!
I am so happy that this queen size quilt is done. The hand quilting definitely took a long time, but I really like the feel of hand quilted quilts I think they are so soft and cuddly and the backing is in flannel which makes it even more cuddly. Yes, there were lots of times when I thought I would never get the quilt completed. This past week I only had two squares left on one corner and then binding the quilt so I worked thru the weekend and it’s finally done. Sorry to all the square dancers we missed on Sunday and my guys here had to sacrifice their typical home cooked meal for sub sandwiches! I can finally do a happy dance that this project is done and with the help of all my blogging friends I was able to keep on pace and keep on quilting until the job was done!
I was so excited that the big quilt was done that I opened up the quilt box with the pieced tops that are still waiting for me and the one on top was an “Amish-Style” 9 patch block in real bright colors with black sashings. This one is a lap quilt for my couch. I have some really pretty multi-color thread that I am using for the stitching.
This one is being machine stitched with a wavy stitch and the backing is multi-color cacti. I was going along fine and over 3/4 done, but now at a stand still as my full spool of thread ran out and now I get to make a trip to the fabric store for more thread! Who doesn’t like trips to the fabric store!? 😉
Well that’s the update for quilting today, when the Amish quilt is done the next one is a log cabin block quilt. I’ll let you know what I find at the fabric store! 😉 Until next time sending all you crafters a “yellowrock”.
