At the end of every year, I like to look back at the quilts I’ve finished. I do this over several posts. This is the first post taking stock of the hand quilting I’ve done.
I only hand quilted three big quilts last year, but this first one required a lot of hand piecing as well, so I’m happy with that. I started piecing these vintage GFG blocks together at least 25 years ago so it is a particularly sweet finish.
This top was purchased at a local antique mall. I finished it with a pastel variegated crochet thread with a big stitch. I love how it turned out!
This last one was a Facebook Marketplace find. The top had been minimally quilted at a later date. I took it apart and requilted it.
We shall see how much I get done this year. Have a great day!
Your hand quilting is beautiful!!
It’s a nice idea to do a year in review. I just love all three of these quilts! You really rescued the last two. And the first, your GFG, is simply a masterpiece!
You are my hero woman! And that 2nd quilt, from the antique mall, makes my heart sing!
VERY impressive! Beautiful job, what treasures!
I love all 3 of them, but the third one is my favorite! You amaze me that you can get so much hand quilting done. Just wonderful! Hugs,
Ooooo these are so pretty! Quite an accomplishment!
