I’m in the process of making the quilt for our bed… but in the evening I’m doing a little hand quilting on a small one that I started ages back. Hand quilting without a thimble is a bit disconcerting to say the least. And I cannot for the life of me find my hand-made leather thimble.. 😦 So I am posting a link back to the one I made using a chamois back in 2009. Today I will be making another one.
I finally decided I would do the Split Rail Fence quilt since this will be the first king size quilt I’ve made. I love the way it looks! I laid it out on the bed yesterday and was really surprised that I will love it. The blocks are 13″ block and will give ample room for specialty quilting.
It’s coming along nicely and I already have almost all the blocks I need. If you would like to make one with me or follow along with the steps, just drop me a note or leave a comment and I will be a little more specific about the steps.. 🙂
It’s much cooler this week here in North Texas. A couple of days ago it was in the upper 40s when I got up at 5am. Little cool standing out there in my house coat waiting for Sam to make up his mind where to do his business..lol
Have a wonderful day and make something today… even if it’s just making a little noise with a song.. 🙂
