Hand Quilting

This weekend I have been hand quilting on my Whole Cloth quilt. Some years ago I took a class with Karen McTavish on designing a Whole Cloth quilt , most of the people in the class were planning on machine quilting their quilts but I chose to hand quilt and have been at it for years!! But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and have a goal of finishing it by the end of May. I want to bring it to a Retreat I go to in June , so hope that it movtivates me . No pictures until it's finished. I'm going to my daughter's for supper tonight , it's always nice not to have to cook.

I'm back

I have been working on more of my BTCT blocks this winter, right now I'm working on block 16 with all the grapes!!! I have just relized only a couple of more blocks need to be printed off and then the border, the end is in site. I'm posting a picture of my finished Southern Gentleman by Fat Cat designs , in which I appliqued a block a month for 16 months, must say I surprised myself .

I feel Spring is finally on it's way in SE Minnesota along the Mississippi River between the beautiful Bluff, although we will propably have some flooding the cool weather has slowed everything down. Here are some pictures of my projects
