Noah's Ark

 The hand quilting has progressed to the sky. The clamshells quilt very fast.



Are you wondering how the marking progress is going on blue stars around the garden? Very slowly. My goal is to get it in the quilting frame on New Year's Day, will I succeed? We'll find out later.

The clamshells don't look like they would go fast, but I will take your word for it. They really add texture to the quilt.

Looks like you are very close to finishing the sky and then only 2 borders to go... I think you will meet your goal! Merry Christmas Gretchen!

Clam shells are perfect 'cloud adjacent' motifs. Looks so close to the upper borders!

I am thinking you will get Blue Stars in the Garden in your frame. Always love looking at Noah's Ark; the clamshells are looking fabulous, as are the clouds. Such a pretty quilting design.
