Hand Quilt Along Update

Hello my friends! I am a bit late getting this update out, but better late than never, right? I wish I could say I had a lot more progress on my Salem Quilt Guild panel, but after my anniversary cruise, there just wasn’t a lot of time to spend embroidering.

Last time I left off in the middle of the happy jack o lantern.

And this time I have managed to get a few French knots and a bit of quilt outlining done. Not much, but a little is still progress in my book!

BUT– I am happy to report that my backing fabric came in for my Down the Rabbit Hole Quilt, so I finally started to quilt it! YEA!

It is going along way faster than I thought it would. I am using a loopy freestyle by hand,not computer stitch. It looks so very cute:)!

I especially love the center. This is the whole reason I started this quilt in the first place:)

It should be just a week or so more… maybe by the next HQAL report I will be able to have a final reveal and photo shoot. SWEET!!!

This HQAL is really a nice way to keep me motivated. If you have a hand project, and would like to join along, here is how:

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 and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  1. I love that backing fabric. Great choice. Any time you get your needle into the fabric, it is a step forward. I am having guilty feelings because I haven’t pulled out my quilt hoop for 2 months. Maybe when the weather cools off a bit. Keep posting so we can see how it goes.


    1. Hello AJ! That is a great question! My inspiration comes from other quilters here on WordPress, the many talents quilters on Instagram and Pinterest, and also from my friends who want to sew, make, or quilt this or that. I see it, and it is like a candy addiction, I have to make one too! Lol😊❤️

    1. Hi Kerry! Yes, yes, and yes!/) I am so excited to see this quilt done that I almost can’t believe it. Some quilts start and finish and somewhat fade in the background. This one is a loving memory of things I learned, time I spent sewing it, and the joy of seeing it come together. Yes, your are right, I want to work on it all of the time:)
