It seems like a lifetime since I have done any hand quilting. With working on the stockings the past few months, that took away the evenings for quilting. I like to quilt while sitting with "The Man of the Place" in the evening. And in the summer I just don't have much sitting around in the evening like in the winter. That's another reason why I love the winter.
This is the quilt we made in our 30's Club at Sager Creek a couple years ago. And I had started quilting on last year.
I'm using a wool batting and really do love quilting it. It is like they said, "just like quilting through butter".
I'm doing an 1/4 inch outline quilting around the majority of the blocks.
I believe I might have about 5th of it completed.
I'm using Roxanne needles #11
They are a strong needle, which I need because I have a tendency to bend my needles. I believe it is because I like to load 4-5 stitches on my needle at a time.
Do you remember when I planted my Amaryllis back in November. I figure they would not bloom in time for Christmas. I was wrong, a couple day before Christmas this bulb decided to show it's beauty
