I'm still hand quilting on my Pastor's Attic Quilt. The diamonds between the quilt center and the border applique are quilted.
I've rolled and now working on the applique part.
I can literally see the the end in sight! The top of the quilt has been unpinned from the header and pinned to the batting and backing fabric.
This corner applique is not original to this quilt pattern, the pattern for this applique comes from the 1857 Album Quilt. I downloaded the free patterns from Sentimental Stitches but the pattern is no longer free. The pattern for the whole quilt is available for purchase if you're interested.
I did reduce the size of the pattern to fit the corners.
The left flower is the center of the border.
There are still several weeks of quilting before she's finished.
I'm still counting the yards of thread but now I need to measure by the yard and cut it to length. I cut 10 yards at a time in 1 yard measurement. The way I keep it from getting tangled is to pin it to the quilt like this.
I pull the individual thread out from the bottom. It slides out by itself and there is no tangling.
