The room is getting bigger!

You cannot rush handquilting!

I know, I know, I have not blogged very much lately... It's been a very busy summer! Work has been busy and time consuming. We have been visiting and going out with many friends. As for quilting, it has been too hot in my sewing room which is in a kind of attic. However I have been very good and doing a bit of handquilting almost every day (in the morning, that's me in my pj's) long as my fingers are not too sore!

I have quilted all the way around the outside and have turned under the two ends of my frame!

I am not marking the quilt, but just quilting it as I go and am enjoying the process, but it is sooooo slow especially when a deadline looms ahead!

I have 2 baby quilts to finish and another to start (this one is designed on paper and the fabric washed and ready to be cut). I have to machine quilt my black, white and red quilt, and start my bed quilt, plus 3 other quilts in various states of completion.
