I've been keeping busy with Christmas gifts. I am almost finished hand-quilting the Angel Quilt, designed by Cheri Payne. I am big stitching since it is a primitive quilt. I have around 2 more angels to go and the border, which I am just going to follow the lines in the plaid. I'm stitching around the angels, a heart on her dress and 4 stars on the background.
I'm also making good progress on my daughter's Christmas owl table runner. I embroidered the redwork and put them together. I am about 1/2 way through machine quilting it.
Also this week, I found out that Kathy Schmitz has a monthly stitchery club called One Stitch at a Time. It is $2 a month or $24 a year. The first of every month you will get an embroidery design emailed to you. If you want to check it out, it is here. I actually purchased one of her prior patterns yesterday that will be a perfect gift for granddaughter Kyleigh, and one for myself. Just need to get them traced onto fabric.
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project or would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
