Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Vintage Seven Sisters

I’ve been slowly working on hand quilting this vintage top and I finally feel like I’m making progress. I’ve done one row of these large fans all the way around the outside edge.

You may be able to see the quilting better on the back.

And yes, I am starting on the edge and working toward the center. I’ve found that this works out just fine when I’ve basted well on the long arm first. This also allows me to mark the fans as I go instead of doing all of that before I start. And I can also get it bound at this point which makes the rest of the quilting a bit less messy.

According to my calculations, I have 65% of the quilting done!

Have a great day!

    Wow – looking great. I might have missed it, but how do you baste on a long arm? For that matter, can a quilt be basted on a domestic? Just wondering.

  3. Such a pretty quilt! You are really clipping along with the quilting!
