This and That Tuesday

I’m actively working on several different projects right now. I didn’t make as much progress on my hand quilting last week, but I’m back at it now. I can’t say my stitches are improving, but I sure love the texture.


I’ve also started machine quilting the QOV. It is mostly ruler  work and slow going.


And far from perfect at that! Here is a little look at the back.


I have a machine embroidery project that I hope to work on today as well. So much to do, so little time.

Have a great day!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Looking at your quilts makes me so tempted to give quilting a go. It looks so complex that I wouldn’t know where to start! In any case, you have created some absolutely beautiful quilts. Thank you for sharing your work.

    You certainly are one busy gal. I love the texture your hand quilting has. I hope you post the washed quilt so we can see how it pops even more.

  3. Hand quilting does relax us and you can’t beat the texture. Love the quilting design you came up with!

    Having recently done my first quilt with ruler work, wondering if you could give some advice on stopping and starting when you need to roll? Your quilt looks great

    Love seeing your hand quilting, Katy! You may recall that I am mostly a hand quilter….you just cannot beat the look and feel of a hand quilted quilt….
    Love the quilting on the QOV quilt….looking forward to seeing it all finished!

  6. If you find some extra time please share! Nice projects!

    Both the hand quilting and the machine quilting look great. Both add great texture, and the stitches are usually hidden once you wash the quilt.
