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
