X’s and O’s

I finished this top in the spring and I started the hand quilting and have worked on it off and on since.     I decided to spread it out today and see how much I have done.


As cute as Teddy looks posing on it I had to ask him to move to get a better picture.


The center is done and I have the corners to finish.  I don’t know if you can see the marking in the picture but there is a one inch grid marked for quilting.


I have more done than I thought 🙂   It will still be a while before it is done….but nice to know it is over 1/2 done

Happy Quilting

    Morning Tim, and Teddy you look so dapper this morning. Like Annette this quilt appeals to me, I love the corners, your back ground fabric changes the whole look to the X and O. So glad you have found time to quilt it. Cheers Glenda Australia.

    Love this quilt. Enlarged the pic so I could see the markings for quilting. It is so accurate. Do you use a pencil and straight edge? Does the pencil wash out easily?

    How big is it? It’s beautiful!

    Of all of your quilts pieced since I’ve been reading your blog for about a year, this is my favorite! That polka dot fabric is super! Is it staying in your own collection?

    It’s such a pleasant surprise to find out that you are closer to the finish line than you thought. Glad you had that experience today! That Teddy. Must be hard to ask him to move when he is so photogenic. 😊
