The definition of “progress” is: the development, advancement, or improvement, as toward a goal. If that is the case, then I guess I am making progress on my next journey…handquilting Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”. I am echo quilting and I must say, I love how it looks. Although, I also must say that I start hyper-ventilating every time I start to think about how long this is going to take! I am not doing any marking on the background, just eye-balling it. On some of the blocks, which have a bit more space, I will add some motifs, maybe some feathers, my initials and the date. Who knows?
Thanks goodness I have someone to keep me company. That just makes the time go so much quicker! I started out using a hoop, but I am experimenting with quilting without a hoop and it seems to be working….for now. I will keep you posted on the slow, but steady, progress!
Last night I finished stitching the top half of my hexie quilt, because what kind of quilter would I be if I didn’t have more that a few intense projects on the go? Every time I sit and stitch these hexies, I am amazed at how quickly they are going together. And how easily! I am using Inklingo to print my shapes. I have already started printing the next set of shapes for my next hand-piecing project, but I have vowed (definition of vow: to promise solemnly; pledge) to myself that I will only have one hand-piecing project on the go at any given time!!
Til next time….
