I have been lucky enough to have finished several large projects! What a great feeling that is, so I thought I would tackle the king size quilt that I started 8 years ago to finish! The quilt is for our bed and it is the closet to a whole-cloth quilt that I will ever make. (Logan loves whole-cloth quilts) I stopped working on it when we opened the walk-in store 8 years ago. I had to take it off the frame and store the quilt in my closest 6 years ago when our daughter Jamie was married! Well, the walk - in store is closed and its back where it is supposed to be, in the frame by the windows and I have enjoyed hand quilting again!
The quilt is made of 13 - 8" x 98" strips with lots of hand quilting (I think the more the better!). I am cross hatching the print strips and quilting feathers with cross hatching in the background on the green strips. 4 strips are done so that only leaves 9 to go! Here is a close up of the quilting.
I have always loved hand quilting. It puts me in a great place and I am so relaxed. The only problem is, that's all I want to do is to hand quilt! Oh well it could be worse. You should try hand quilting, it has been around for a long time and now I totally understand why, because it makes you feel sooo good!
Until the next post Happy Quilting!
