People who truly love quilting for the fabric, the process (over & above perfection), the color, texture, and cheap therapy. Life is stressful. It's good to have random discussions about a quilt in the hoop and the thread on the floor.
Although things have been terribly busy around here, I still manage to squeeze in a little time here and there for hand quilting. In fact, on Friday, my husband was running about two hours behind for our trip to Seattle. I just pulled out my hand quilting and stitched (and stitched) until I got myself all calmed down and in a better traveling mood. lol Hand quilting is very therapeutic you know!
Quilting from the middle out.
I have stitched the entire center of the Antique Medallion quilt clear out to the sawtooth stars and into the first half of the green delectable mountains border. I marked a small pomegranate design in the big area of the green border, just copying the same pomegranate from the middle of the quilt. I still need to wash the blue markings out, but I thought maybe you could see the design better if I took a picture before.
Looking a little closer....
This quilt has been very enjoyable for me to stitch no matter what's going on around me. I get frustrated sometimes at how much time it takes for me to finish hand quilting a quilt, but the rewards are invaluable. Can't wait until I can snuggle underneath it properly!
