June 3…Hand quilt along

Every experience deeply felt in life needs to be passed along – whether it be through words and music, chiselled in stone, painted with a brush or sewn with a needle, it is a way of reaching for immortality” Thomas Jefferson

Can you believe it ..it’s time for another round of show and tell!

The quilting on the Fire Island Hosta quilt is coming along, here’s where I was three weeks ago.

Working on the dark swag,with the left side of the quilt finished. Where I am today…

I was able to finish the dark swag and worked to the end of row ,rolled the quilt ,and worked in the area below the red mark. I’m about half way working from the right of the quilt moving towards the left.

Some photos of the quilting designs,there’s really a lot of stitch in the ditch in this kind of quilt as with

paper piecing the seams can become too thick to hand quilt.

Doing a sun ray effect in the center

Then I will be using the fabric design to quilt around between these points.

Had to get a change in my glasses so as to see better..😏 these stitches just wanted to blur,but I’m good to go again. Sure am thankful for these things even if it tells me I’m getting old!😄

I also worked on the cathedral window quilt when riding along with hubby on a service call that was several times from home.

Where I was….

And where I am today…

That’s it for me.😀

Go give the others a visit to see hand work in progress

  1. Marvelous progress on both counts! Do you quilt your hosta quilts pretty much the same, or are there lots of variations? I have some of at background fabric from Connecting threads, in white and light blue, love it. You do such beautiful work Deb, s

    1. A lot of the stitching is the same but each one has a different designs also,to keep me from getting bored. I like connecting threads fabric and it often fits my budget.Thank you !

  2. You’re making great progress–and I love seeing the different approaches to deciding on the quilting design. I did that technique of outlining the fabric pattern once–and I’ll never do it again! It was so fiddly and all that changing of direction–ick! I’m impressed with your commitment to doing it. I haven’t touched my cathedral window quilt in months–every time I see yours, I get a little inspired!

    1. I really don’t mind changing directions in quilting for i just change hands . Maybe by the time you finish your red and white quilt ,you will have gathered enough inspiration to go back to working on it.🙂


      1. It is nice for quilting and rotary cutting… it wasn’t so nice in school when I had a hard time telling left from right,and gps gizmos in the vehicles are a blessing.😁
