How Fast Can I Hand Quilt - Design Board Monday
I really like this quilt. I made it just for me to snuggle with during the winter on the couch and then drag around with me like Linus. Our house sometimes gets drafty and its nice to have something on your lap when you are in the den or on the computer or up in the bedroom reading or on the couch sluggingl Its made with Amy Butler prints from about 4 years ago and pieces of sateen solids. I'm hand quilting it using shiny rayon and poly threads. This is only my second time using non quilting threads for quilting so sometimes it can be a bit tricky - but I love the effect. I would also love to have this to enter plus use for the upcoming winter.
My husband laughed when I said I was thinking of marathon quilting for a fair entry. This isn't the first time I've done it and it always throws everything into a tizzy - still I've never missed a deadline. All my other projects will have to stop though. So I think I'll try it. . . . . . .I'll let you know how its going.
Oh and all prayers would be greatly appreciated!!
