Some Progress


Here's my kitty getting a little hand quilting.  I'm just going around the eyes and nose. I haven't hand quilted is such a long time. I ended up poking myself and bleeding on the wall hanging. My hand is sore today! I should practice hand quilting more often. Years ago, that was the only way I finished quilts.  Machine quilting has really taken over for me!


Here's Block #2, Peacock Feathers! I still have 2 wedges to piece. I'm trying to sew the wedges together as I go along. It's no fun putting these wedges together and lining everything up. It's nice to be able to sew a few together instead of all at once. It would probably drive me crazy!! I can take it better in a smaller time frame.
