Yes, every stitch is that much closer to be finished. I have been enjoying my quilting time which is good because you just can't speed up hand quilting.
I've finished row 6 of the churn dash blocks and the bottom half of row 6 white squares.
The right side border, ready to be rolled then start the journey back to the left side.
The quilt is rolled and ready to start the quilting again. Whoever designed this quilting frame was brilliant. I love my Grace frame!
I made some purchases at the resale table when I was at the Jane Stickle Retreat, to make crib quilts with. Two of them are finished.
These two flannels remnants were sewn together to make an easy crib quilt that measures 43". I did an easy straight line quilting.
The red flannel pieced with the yellow flannel is perfect for the backing.
The binding is a red cotton. I personally don't like to use flannel for bindings.
The 2nd crib quilt was this animal panel. She was quilted with spiral quilting.
I like the spiral quilting and I pin the layers together closely but my spiral quilted quilts always end up a little wonky. Oh well, it will still keep a child warm.
The quilting shows up best on the back. Again I used pieced flannel for the back. I think striped bindings look so nice. This fabric gives an illusion of bias binding but it's not. The fabric was printed with the stripe already on the diagonal. She measures 41" by 52" and is a charity quilt.
Isn't it wonderful to see green grass again? I'm so glad spring is here even if I don't have as much time to sew anymore.
