Weekly Hand Quilting

Progress has been made on Floral Triangles this week. I finished the row I was quilting.


This was the triangle I was quilting last Sunday.


The pieced triangle and the half triangle edge block.


The left border. The flower is red and the vine/leaves are green.

I've rolled and this week I'll be working on finishing the top part of the triangles. I'll also be stitching in the ditch horizontally along the edge between the bottom row and the next row.



Leaves are being appliqued on the center medallion for Stars Around the Garden.

HQAL - Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

Your hand quilting is beautiful. I have a quilt ready to go to give hand quilting a try. I hope some day it turns out as good as yours.

I didn't start out quilting like this, it's like anything else, practice, practice and still more practice. You'll never arrive if you don't start.

I always tell beginning quilters it's not the stitch length that is important, it's the evenness of the stitches.

Lovely! Just looking at it makes me want to run my hands over it. I like what you're doing with the colored threads, too.

Looking so beautiful! My hand quilting is definitely improving the more I do. Practice does make a difference and I'm pleased to say I'm even getting the hang of quilting in different directions!

It must feel so good each time you get to roll forward. :) You got a lot of leaves stitched down already.

Your stitching is so beautiful, it always pleases me to see your pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon. I am not a hand quilter yet, but maybe you could give me a tip when I see you.
