I have a love affair with peppered shot cottons going on. These are the leftovers from Cristina's quilt. I couldn't bear to cut them up, so here's this terrific 80" x 80" quilt which I am hand-quilting. It will go to Ann Arbor and my niece Jen. She went to Fordham and danced professionally in NYC for several years. Now she is raising her children in a beautifully inclusive way. This quilt will be perfect for their house. And I love the touch of this quilt and the sound made as the needle pulls the No. 8 Perle cotton through the layers. Look at the backing - I bought it years ago, probably because it was on sale, not knowing how I would want to use it. This quilt? Perfect. I'm two-thirds of the way through, which means I need to line up my next hand quilting project!
|This has been long armed and just needs binding.|
|This is the quilt of blocks made with the Canadian Quilters Association Sew-A-Long in 2019. Blocks have all been connected, but the quilt needs quilting.|
|But this is my next hand-quilting project. Just lots of low volume with a wall batting and an AGF backing. It will be perfect to hold and fondle as soon as the first quilt above is complete.|
