Slow Stitching Sunday ~ A Little Hand Quilting 

I thought I’d share an update on my hand quilting progress. It should have been done by now. But there isn’t any deadline.

In this picture you can see that quilted vs. nonquilted parts. It’s hard to see the difference!

The back is where the quilting shows.

You can tell where the edges of the quilt top are by the basting lines. I used a couple different feedsacks for the back and one was quite yellow.

And a full shot of the top.


I find my hand often goes numb when hand quilting so that accounts for part of the slowness.  I hope to get two more fans quilted today. If I did two every day for a week, it would be done!

Have a great day!

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts

    Beautiful quilt in my kind of colors. The numbness in your hand sounds like carpal tunnel. Ask me how I know.

    Love your hand stitching. I think you have inspired me to get back to my frame this week and start hand quilting again. I have the numbness too sometimes… I find I just have to take more breaks. Good luck with your goals.

    My hands go numb every night while I sleep, but my doctor says it is fine, but just annoying. I know how you feel. I hope you are able to continue with your hand-quilting, because it looks so beautiful.
