June 16 …Hand quilt along update…..

Happy Father’s Day……It is hard to believe that it has been 13 years since my dad has passed away, and 3 months since Papa Bear has passed ! They both are truly missed.

Now time for the update. 😊

There are six blocks across the quilt with six rows from top to bottom giving a total of 36 blocks to do along with the border. I have finished four of the blocks ,working on number 5. Here I was last time…..

Here is where I am now…

I’m working where the thread is. Here is a crude drawing of how it is to be quilted.

The backing is a piece that I have had for awhile ,it is from Moda fabric .

Happy quilting folks until next time!

    1. Thank you! That top is a beauty for sure. That poor frame needs some repairs,as it’s been used ..very used! I didn’t get to do any happy stitching ,hubby and I spent the weekend with his mama as she is finding hard to adjust to living alone.

  4. I really like your quilting plan. It is different and yet symmetrically balanced, which I always like. The backing is beautiful, too, so it will be wonderful no matter which way is up.

    1. I debated about going across seams , but it might…. add some stability to those old seams. So far it’s not been to bad, might break a few needles, though.πŸ˜€
