I got a call from the repair shop today saying QD could come home! She's cleaned and had two new light bulbs -- and she's still out in the car. I've got Miss Genie sitting in her spot and have gotten distracted with a bit of HAND QUILTING.
I don't hand quilt, like I don't hand applique. But both are changing. Several years ago I took a hand quilting class with the intention of learning to hand quilt so I could hand quilt my double wedding ring (DWR) quilt - the one that's still not pieced.
Over the last two weeks, I got to thinking that I need to practice my hand quilting before I start on the DWR. Meanwhile, my nephew's quilt still needs to have the pieced blocks quilted, and I haven't figured out how/what to quilt. These two thoughts resulted in deciding to finish up the blocks on the quilt by hand.
There are 15 pieced blocks. Hopefully by the time I get to the last block, my quilting will be decent and I'll have found a style that works for me. It's slow going at the moment -- I think I've only gotten through 1/8th of the first block so far.
