Happy Valentine

Hope you had a good day.
I did, I got 
FaceTime with the "little dudes" this afternoon. So nice to spend time with them.



I put another quilt in my hoop today. 



It is a quilt I started probably 15 years ago. It is another scrap quilt with scraps from my clothing sewing days.
A lot of memories in this one.



 A majority of it quilted already.



The pattern is Rocky Road and I did foundation piecing, using my favorite color BLUE



I'm using blue quilting thread and at the time I started this it wasn't popular to use Pearl Cotton thread to quilt with as it is now. I do wish I had cause I believe it would be easier than what I'm doing now. 

I wanted a larger stitch than I usually do and again that has been something I think I wouldn't do again. It looks fine but to change what I normally do is a challenge. It's like learning all over again. I have to pay attention, if not I fall back into what I'm comfortable doing.


I don't normally spend time piecing a back together but I had extra blocks so I did on this one.



And I have to say I was lucky when I sandwiched it together cause the quilting matches fairly well on the back too.

So this is it and I do not plan it taking me another 15 years to finish.
I wish tho I would of kept track of how many hours I have in it quilting. Something I plan on doing from now on.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
