Welsh Beauty

I had quilted more than half of a swath across Welsh Beauty before I left for Phoenix.

First I quilted the center just because I could. Each roll of the quilt shows more and more of the center design.



Then I quilted the right side.


After returning home, the left side was quilted.


It was nice to have a two week break from quilting, but now I'm back at the hand quilting again!

This is a queen sized quilt with lots of quilting. The sides of the  crosshatching squares are 3/4". As I said in Friday's post, I'm hoping to be halfway finished with the quilting by May.

It looks great - I love the design on this one - I keep saying I will purchase a whole cloth top to quilt and never do as I have so many waiting to be quilted as it is

I read your last post with great interest because of course, I'm intrigued by your quilting plans. I took a look at the Wildflowers quilt and really like it. I struggle to say which fabrics are my favourite as I tend to love them all. Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilting; it is always a pleasure to visit you. A very healthy Happy New Year to you Gretchen!

Your quilting is looking fabulous Gretchen, your stitches are so even and lovely. I wish I was getting as much of my wholecloth done.
Happy New Year!
