Thanks to everyone for your concern about my sore back. I am feeling much better. I have been taking it easy and as I said in the previous post I have only been working on an easy quilt. The big stitch quilting with perle cotton thread and a large needle goes fast and doesn’t need to be as accurate. I am doing it in a hand held hoop which makes it better for the back. When I quilt in a frame or a hoop on a stand I tend to lean forward and it puts strain on my lower back. With the hand held I can pull it up closer to myself and sit straight. I still prefer the frame/hoop stand but I am looking into a batter chair to use so the height is better
I have made a lot of progress, I should be able to finish in a few days and be back to work on other things.
Teddy has been keeping an eye on me while I work.
Here is the hoop I am using. It is a no brand inexpensive 18 inch wooden hoop from a garage sale.
Here is the quilt without the hoop.
And Teddy checking my work
Here is the back….I made the backing with the lighter colored leftovers from the top.
I am close to the end so Next time I hope to have the finished quilt to show.
