One Block Down

18 Mar

I seem to be a bit obsessed with hand quilting and the quilt as you go method. I LOVE the way hand quilting looks, either with Perle cotton or thread. I recently found some QAYG tutorials on Pinterest and since I have the worlds tiniest throat on my sewing machine and summer is getting closer, I thought this would be a good method to try out. I’ve completed on block and am really loving the way it looks.

My hand quilting is far from perfect, but I think that’s part of the charm. Next time I need to baste it a little better, I messed up on a couple of corners and bunched the fabric a bit. Now that things have slowed down a bit at Caleb’s school (for a couple weeks anyway) I will have some more time to sew again. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’m looking forward to relaxing tonight with a little quilting. Happy Monday!
