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!

Your quilting photos have reminded me to pick up my hoop that is sitting right in front of me. Your quilting stencils are so pretty. Enjoy your stitching.

Deb A said...

Wow! What a masterpiece you are creating. Beautiful.

Gretchen Weaver said...

I never know for sure how a stencil is going to look for sure when I mark the quilt top. I am very pleased with how the quilting is turning out.

Gretchen Weaver said...

I'd enjoy seeing more about your quilt on your blog. Have a relaxing week.

Chopin - A Passionate Quilter said...

Well Ms Gretchen! Another masterpiece! It is amazing how a quilt with the same block takes on a whole new look with your beautiful quilting! Stunning!

Carrolyn V said...

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!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Lovely work!

Gretchen Weaver said...

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.

Gretchen Weaver said...

I am so pleased with how this quilt is turning out.

Gretchen Weaver said...

Thank you. I'm afraid you all will get bored with the same project every week but it's what I'm working on.

I love blue and white quilts. I agree, I think they look cool, crisp and clean. Thanks!

Gretchen Weaver said...

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.

Gretchen Weaver said...

Thank you.
