I’ve been on a West Wing kick of late. Jermaine’s in a crunch time at school so he needed a somewhat quiet area to work on his website so I went into the craft room and plopped in front of season two. While watching it, I pulled out an old friend–Courtney’s Wedding Quilt.
As you can probably already tell, I’m hand quilting it. I don’t know what I was thinking when I thought that would be a good idea. Hand quilting a baby quilt=cute. Hand quilting a queen size quilt is quite a different story. It’s about 60% done. I made some resolutions this year as far as crafts were concerned and I aim to have this done by Courtney and Dwayne’s 2 year anniversary.
It is quite satisfying to hand quilt something. It takes close to forever to do
Piecing the blocks
Piecing the blocks together
Making the quilt sandwich–backing/batting and top
It’s very laborious but I love this process because there are so many steps. It’s good to get back to. Don’t think I’ll handquilt a QUEEN sized again but it’s a nice change of pace.
