It's been unseasonably cool here so I've been working on hand quilting my vintage butterfly quilt.
I'm trying to make a replica of a quilt I inherited from my grandmother.
So far I have quilted around all of the butterflies in the center and middle rows and quilted around the green sashing in the center and one side of the green sashing in the middle.
I found a template for cables similar to what grandma quilted in her green sashing.
I can tell my hand quilting has improved just since the last quilt I hand-quilted but I'm still glad I get to practice stitching in the ditch before I try any of that cable in the sashing.
I'm glad the weather has been cool and it's been too rainy to work out in the garden because I'm obsessed with getting this quilt finished!
Join us for some Slow Stitching this fine Sunday at Kathy's Quilts.
