I finally made myself sit down and hand quilt on the Star Quilt the past two evenings. I really need to keep it up. I enjoy it after I make myself sit down and will quilt for hours and even hate stopping to go to bed. So why does it seem such a chore to sit down in the first place?
I am actually working on the last two blocks. Yippee! I still have some outer strips on the Irish Chain blocks do quilt. I don't enjoy quilting the hearts because there are so many curves and it seems to take me forever, so I skipped some of them to turn the quilt so they are horizontal to me instead of vertical. Make sense?
Then I have a wide border and plan to quilt it using a flower and vine template. But, I may change my mind and just do some straight stitching so I will get finished more quickly. But then again, it is the first quilt I have totally hand quilted myself and it is a very nice quilt. I am actually thinking about entering it into the county fair this year. So I really should use the template and make it look more elegant.
Well, enough rambling for today. Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting?
