Out of the frame

I decided that in order to get this quilt finished faster I needed to take it out of the frame and do the quilting in a hoop.

It is going much faster now and I will now be able to use the large floor frame for basting quilts.

Teddy wanted to have his picture taken as he does every time I have the camera out.    He doesn’t understand the concept of video….he just knows how to sit still and look good.

I did a tree book cover with just quilting


more hand quilting next time

Happy Quilting

    I like that the ‘new to you’ top is quilted as if it’s 100 years old!

    I learned how on a large frame similar to this. Yes it’s awkward & you twist & turn a lot. I no longer have that one but use a large hoop on a stand or hoop in my lap now. Much easier on the body. 😊 Thank you for sharing about needles & thread. I will look for & try Bohn needles.
