Quilting Progress


I finished the row I was hand quilting last week and will be starting the section in between rows 4 and 5. I am starting to get excited now, row 5 is the last appliqued row in this quilt!


This is the center block I was working on last Sunday. Lots of little circles and leaves.


This is the wild strawberry block. I didn't like the way the strawberries looked with french knots so I removed them when I was appliqueing them.


Got to love these blocks with the larger applique pieces, so quick to quilt.


Left side border.

So far I have quilted every stitch on this quilt myself. Monday I'm having some friends come to quilt. I'll have lots of progress to show you next Sunday.

Every time I visit your place and look at the progress of your hand quilting I am amazed at the gorgeousness of it. My goodness, I cannot imagine the time it took to quilt around all those little strawberries and leaves. Have fun quilting with your friends.

Love my quilting friends but I would have to finish a quilt myself that I had done this much quilting on. When hand quilting everything else seems to be on the back burner...are you looking forward to the finish line?
