Still Hand Quilting

The last row of churn dash blocks is finished except for the very top HST! 


The white squares too.
Now I've rolled and started quilting the top HST of the CD blocks and the triangle blocks. 


I also quilted the bottom edge of the square in a square border.


I got the triangle blocks and the top HST's quilted! 
The quilt top is pinned through the batting onto the backing now.


This week I'm going to try to get the first square/square border completed . . . you'll find out next week if it happened.

Gretchen... I love your quilting on this... I am just trying that string of diamonds border myself for the first time... the piecing right now... and hoping mine turns out as accurate as yours once added to the quilt :) I love your quilting though... sublime! Keep up the good progress! Kathi

My diamond border was by guess, I didn't have a pattern to follow. The original quilt has a white square in the very corner. I have a blue triangle on mine so I didn't have to stress about the white corner!
