Hand quilting



Good morning to you!!!  My 4-H friend from years ago made a layer cake out of some of her fabrics and challenged me to make something.  This is how I am using her fabrics.  It seems like 1930's to me, so I am adding my 1930's prints to the mix.  It seems old fashioned and just soft and lovely to me.




I got a bug to make some blue blocks, and so I did.  These are 12 inches finished, so large ones for me.


I have taken this project out of the quilt vault (closet) and have actually added another row to it.  Hurrah!!  Super simple blocks, and kind of modern looking sampler.  




I have started to use up my browns with these blocks.  Someone on the blogs made a quilt like this!!  Please shout out if it was you, please, so I can credit you!!!



I made four so far.







I am so lucky to have good help, although Lucky the kitty seems to be nocturnal, and likes to party all night and sleep during the days.  His eyes are so lovely to me!!!
This is my hand quilting project...Wagon Wheel, a long-ago pieced top.  I made good progress on it, and enjoy the slow, contemplative movement of the needle pulling thread through the layers.  Just good fun!!!


Hope each of you is having a lovely quilting day, or a lovely time with whatever you are up to!!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

all projects are coming along nicely at your house--
as for cats--would you believe it is a cat's nature to sleep daytimes and hunt nights--so our house kittys--like to play during the night--not much to hunt for inside!!!!
enjoy--hugs, di
