The quilt top was finished in the first couple weeks of October. See my first blog post about putting it together in part one, the pattern link is included.
It was quilted around the third week.
Binding was applied in the third week also. I didn’t get the binding completed until the end of December. Thats what quilting is like. A lot of family responsibilities come first and quilting gets pushed aside as a hobby. Thank goodness quilting is patient and quietly waits for me to return.
I really enjoy the hand stitching portion of my quilts. It’s relaxing, rhythmic, routine, and the very best cuddle time with my two Yorkshire terriers.
‘m able to bind a quilt more quickly than the speedwell quilt. I made the effort and dragged this quilt along on many outings.
I never had time to sit and stitch on any of the outings. It was not from lack of trying.
Planning travel with your projects is always a good idea. You need a little supply kit and a sturdy bag. I find that I can get a lot of stitching done when I wait for kids and parents at appointments. Or when watching a show.
Hey maybe I should do a blog post on how to travel with quilts? Well this one is ready for a cold wash and warm dry. Then it will be put into rotation for household use. I’m sure I’ll feature the quilt during the fall months. It’s a keeper and big enough for me my husband and two little dogs to cuddle and be warm.
