Jan.12….Hand quilt along update….

Harriet Powers was born under slavery in Athens ,Ga ,she learned to sew by others around her and that it may have also included her mistress. This quilt she made is call the Bible quilt.


For today’s update…. here’s where I was…

In the last block of the row with 12 more blocks to go.

Today I finished that row ,rolled the top ,working for right to left in the third block down leaving me 9 and a half blocks to finish.

Leona had a bad cold that had me close by her side again ,so I pulled out this quilt top to work on in the lap hoop.

Quilting baptist fans on it ..about 1/3 of the way done. It’s a throw
size quilt.
These are all old vintage scrap pieces that I used.
That’s it for me.
Check out the others! the purpose of this group is to share our hand quilting adventures and to encourage each other. New members are always welcome, any type of hand quilting is acceptable. That could be piecing, quilting, embellishing, applique and finishing.

  1. Nothing worse than a bad cold…hope Leona is feeling better and you don’t come down with it. Oh I just I love that brown quilt your working on. Those vintage fabrics are wonderful…love the whole look of this. The log cabin is coming along great too. I also caught the program on Quilts on PBS!

      1. If its a sickness, we’ve both got it. Although I don’t quilt you don’t know how many quilt squares, scraps, and other vintage fiber crafted pieces I come home with whenever I’m in an antique store. It’s either textiles or paper – books, photographs, postcards.
