Merrily I Sew Along... Sew Along... Sew Along :)

Thinking this to Mary Had a Little Lamb beat! lol

I am currently still traveling uphill on this quilt for my honey.  But I am like the little engine that could and progress is happening faster than I anticipated when starting this project!

Many quilters keep multiple projects going to avoid boredom with one project... I just can't do that very well.. so full steam ahead on this project... I am now about 65% done on the feathers and 16% done on the blocks of this quilt and I am loving it....

Currently... I am back to stitching a couple feathers so I can quilt larger segments to take pics of on a weekly basis to remember the progress I am actually making..

With a large project you have to pace yourself as it doesn't get done overnight.. I gave myself 4 months in which to hand quilt this queen sized throw and I am well about 1/3 done with the whole quilt now... so I think I am well ahead of an April finish... but time will tell.

Life happens and things keep me from quilting... my daughter needs to eat every night (haha) and the house has to be straightened (LOL)... my honey helps out a lot and I am lucky to have so much time to devote to things I enjoy like hand quilting.

Hope you enjoyed my article for new hand quilters.. would love your feedback!!  I hope you will share what works for YOU to make it through the middle of a large hand quilting project!

Happy Stitching :)

  1. You are moving along fast. I am one of those who works on several projects at a time. It would probably take me forever to quilt a Queen throw. LOL Working on my honey's twin throw will give me an idea of how long a Queen will take. Pacing myself:)

  2. I've never been one to work on more than one project at a time ... Until I discovered hexies. But they're my portable projects, so they don't really count. ;-) You're coming along nicely ... Hopefully life's interruptions won't keep you from working on your quilting for too long.

  3. Yes, you are stitching right along. You have the momentum going. I must say I am surprised that you can quilt without a thimble.
