Finally . . .

I finally got around to sandwiching the Star Quilt Along Quilt today. I spent most of the evening (and into the night) hand quilting on it. I was able to complete one block.

I am just going to decide on the quilting as I go along as each star block is different. It is nice to sit and hand quilt while watching TV. Much quieter than machine quilting.

I have decided I am going to work on one block at a time, even if I have to move the quilt often. I only have to snap the clamps off, move the quilt, and snap them back on.

Another scorcher out there today. I stepped outside to walk at 7 o'clock yesterday morning and it was already too muggy. This morning was cooler.  I guess I could get out of bed earlier, couldn't I?

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. the humidity is back - it was nice dry air for awhile but with the humidity coming back we have more chances for rain which we need so badly. I like to hand quilt because it isn't noisy - your quilt is looking great!!

  2. oh, my! that is as close to perfection as one can hope for. It looks so crisp, clean and the right choice for the blocks.

  3. Love the hand quilting on this block. Look forward to seeing it grow. Stay cool!

  4. Vivian that quilting is stunning - you do gorgeous work. blessings, marlene
