A Week of Quilting

Much progress was made this week with the quilting on my blue churn dash quilt and the 3rd row of white square are completed.


Left side borders.


Left quilted squares.


The two center squares. 


Right quilted squares.


Right side borders.

I rolled and then quilted row 4 churn dash blocks.


Left side border. It doesn't look very different the above photo.


Left 2 churn dash blocks.

You can see I am quilting part of the white square block in between the churn dashes.


Next 2 churn dash blocks.

The only thing different is the quilting in the white squares.


Churn dash blocks 5 & 6.


And churn dash block 7 and the right side borders.

I rolled again after taking the pictures. The next row of white square blocks is the very center of the quilt. When they are quilted, I will be halfway finished with the quilting!

  16. Absolutely gorgeous.....I so love your handwork! Where do you find so much time to handquilt when you have so many chores also. I just don't seem to be able to get so much done. Do you do your stitching in a chair in your lap or at a frame? No one appreciates hand quilting like a machine quilter! That's me!

    1. I have a quilting frame that I sit at. In the winter I don't have much farm work during the day. Morning and evening chores, yes, during the day, no unless my husband is gone then I need to do some daytime chores. That doesn't happen very often. The grass is starting to green up around here and soon my leisure time will come to an end.

    1. I made the first stitches on February 28th and now she is halfway completed. Spring is coming and I have work outside to do. I won't be able to hand quilt as much but I am hoping to have her completed by the middle of June, if not before.
