For several weeks I've been appliqueing the center for blue Stars Around the Garden. This is why the hand quilting progress has slowed down.
I did make some hand quilting progress this week.
The center white sashing puckers didn't quilt out as well as they did on the other side but the right side had been especially bad. It does look a lot better than it did before quilting.
I had taken a close up of the quilting of the center after I quilted it this week but it disappeared into the void of wherever pictures go.
