March 15…Hand quilt along update… has some very interesting articles of quilting history. I was browsing through some of the myths that they had written about ,with one being that while it’s a lovely picture of a lady piecing a quilt by the fireplace,it is rather unlikely that was the way it was because of the poor lighting. The quilting was more likely to be done May through Nov. when the days were longer. Makes sense as I use a bright light to shine on my quilt when I quilt in the evenings,so I can see the small quilting stitches.

Now it is time for the postponed happy dance! A finished quilted.💃💃

The back
I use a piece from moda collection ,this pieced is called heritage.
This photo shows the quilting a little.
Also put together a few charity quilts.

I haven’t decided on next project yet….

  2. This is sooooo pretty, Deb! It is just stunning out in the sunshine, but I love the photo that highlights the lovely quilting job you did. The charity quilts are lovely, they will be happy surprises for someone. Stay well!


  3. Wow, I love all the quilts – you are so skilled! I especially studied the patch quilt with the diamonds. That quilt is much closer to my personal level of skill, and I loved the alternating gray and black blocks. It made me realize how important design is even when making fairly basic quilts.
