Womenfolk.com 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.💃💃
I haven’t decided on next project yet….
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
