Some progress

I finished the quilting on this quilt today.

I still need to do the binding.    I did wash it when I finished the quilting.  I usually do the binding before washing but since the circle blocks were vintage , and unwashed before I pieced them into the top, I wasn’t sure if they would shrink and cause puckering.   It is easier to steam a quilt flat before adding the binding.   I’ll do the steaming and binding tomorrow.

I also noticed a few places where I missed quilting 😦      I’ll fix those too

Hand quilting is a slow process…..but it is coming along

    Tim, your quilt is beautiful!

  2. Your circle quilt from the vintage is really fun. I like the busy prints together and it seems to have a playful presence. I also love seeing the progress on the rose quilt.

    Echo quilting is time consuming but totally awesome!

    Hi Tim, I love this quilt, it has a mod look to it. I admire all the work you have done on refurbishing the lovely old machines.

    Your quilt looks fantastic. I cannot imagine hand quilting though.
