Handwork Sunday - Dear Jane 1st 2 Blocks


Dear Jane is in the hoop and I have taken a few stitches on it this week after dinner and before bed.  The first two blocks are done, along with the sashing between and around them.  One of the nice things about hand quilting is that it goes slow enough that you can make decisions one by one.  The first block has parallel lines a quarter of an inch apart in alternating directions done with white thread.  The second has diagonal lines through each square done in dark blue thread.  There is no rush to finish this quilt, it has been in the works for a very long time.  As long as it is done in by the time the Midgets are ready for quilting I will be a happy camper.

Great hand-work action today. Are you really that close to a potential Midget flimsy? Oh wow.

Good for you! I want to hand quilt mine, too. It still sits in my room waiting to be basted.

Fabulous! I love your 'no big rush' deadline for your hand quilting.
