Believe it or not I am still quilting...I know I have not posted anything "quilty" in some time but that does not mean I have given up that hobby.
In the summer time I spend more time outside with the yard/flower work than I do in the sewing room. I try to do some hand quilting practically every night - but with it not getting dark until 8:30 (give or take) seems like we don't come in the house until later in the evening.
I did finish the hand quilting on this quilt several weeks ago. Remember when I started it I said it reminded me of a cherry limeade and it still does.
Hum, wish I had one to drink right now...just finished helping DH unload a 16 foot trailer full of lumber, paneling, Sheetrock and carpet he has been tearing out at the church. There is not a bit of wind stirring and I got to sweating like crazy. What is the old saying:
and women get warm....
Well, guess I was a horse as I was dripping wet when we finished.
Back to the quilting subject...this picture shows the colors a bit better.
I am now quilting on the Grandmother's fan quilt I pieced back several weeks ago. It takes a hour to do one block...and with 110 blocks I will be working on it for some time.
