A little HAND quilting!!!!….


Yup, that’s what I said……hand quilting! A client’s inherited quilt that was hand quilted and not quite finished needed some of the hearts in the white blocks stitched. It went very well…I guess it’s like riding a bike…..once you learn, you never really forget! I know I couldn’t go back to that technique but that exercise sure brought back pleasant memories and the desire to do a SMALL hand quilted project. Hmmm, we’ll see about that! 002003004  Another “scorcher” of a day outside…..97F, at the moment, and humidity to match! The A/C is workin’ just fine!!!! Don’t forget to leave a comment here to win the cutest little kit!!!! Drawing on Monday!! And, again, thank you for stopping by for a visit!! Hugs……

  1. I wish I was good at hand quilting!

    I love the quilt. I tried to finish it years ago but just couldn’t get my hands to cooperate. Than you so much!

    It is going to be so beautiful! Thank you so much!!! You are simply the best! More exclamation marks on the other post——I tried to tone it down here. 🙂

  4. This is so sweet, those hearts. I believe the “client” is a mutual friend, correct? She will love this.

    Hot here, too. And I thought a cool front was moving in with less humidity. That does not seem to be the case.

      You are correct about the ‘mutual friend’…hehe!

      The thermometer indicates a lower temp but the ‘feel’ is just as uncomfortable. Still looking for that “cool front” they forecast last eve!!!!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs, D

    Very nice girl! Quite a switch from that awesome machine of yours! The hearts are coming out beautifully though… Stay cool now! Hugs, Karen

      Heading for the river after lunch. The current temp is 76F, headed for the mid 80’s (cool by previous days’ standards) but the humidity is still a factor!! A little rain early this a.m. but the grass is totally brown….ugh! Reading and relaxing (and some time boating) the next 2 days. Have a great weekend!! I thoroughly enjoyed the hand work!!!!!! Hugs…..

    I love hand quilting – both looking at it and doing it! My hands won’t allow me to do the hours of quilting that I used to do but every so often, I still do a little. I find it very relaxing but also slow going! Stay cool!

  8. Love the look of handing quilting. I have a little wall hanging which I want to finish sometime and hand quilt it.

      The stitching came back right away so I’m really tempted to do a little wallhanging, too. Something that would be portable. Hand quilting really does have a very special appeal.
