Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Vintage Pyramids

The hand quilting on the vintage top is coming along nicely. It is fairly small, just 45 by 70 inches.

I didn’t want to have to mark anything, so I decided to just quilt straight lines by eye. This means there is some wonkiness built in! Here is a look at the back.

Have a happy Sunday!

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts

    You are doing a great job quilting straight lines by eye! It’s wonderful that you are finishing these vintage tops, and by hand, just like it would have been done years ago.
