A Little Quilting This Week

Not much hand quilting was accomplished this week. I had a piecing project I was excited about, that received first priority.

How much quilting?

The right outside border.


The right half triangle, a pieced triangle and partially quilted triangle. That's it!

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.

I guess my comment last night did not go through! Your quilting is so beautiful (as always) and am anxious to see the new quilt finished! Hugs

You do such pretty hand quilting. What brand of batting do you use?

AnnieO said...

Looks absolutely delicious! Your stitches show so beautifully.

I started using wool batts for hand quilting several years ago. For this quilt I'm using a Hobbs Tuscany collection wool batt. What is especially nice about this batt is it was neatly folded then packaged. It didn't have those bulges that rolled batting has. I'm sticking with this type now. I buy my batts through Connecting Threads when they're having a 30% off sale. Thanks for commenting!

Every stitch is perfectly beautiful!!! Hope your holidays are jolly and your New Year is happy and peaceful!!!

Wool batting has other advantages too. It resists burning, unlike poly batts which bead up if burned, and will stick to you if there is a fire in the house and you use a quilt that has a poly batt. No matter if wet or dry a wool bat is more comfortable than cotton any day.

K Reeves said...

Beautiful as always, and you still got way more done than I did! I love how that wool bat shows off your beautiful quilting.
