I started with this:
My christmas quilt. Jen and I put this on my frame back in January and I really haven’t had time to work on it. So I pulled it out. I also got out all my tools:
So I started to quilt on the frame and I like to quilt coming towards me and since I am just a budding handquilter, I was having difficulty going sideways. I am stitching in the ditch around the stem:
I can’t wait to use my christmas stencils as fillers! So, back to the dilemma. I took the quilt off the frame. Sorry Jen. It is in the hoop and it is really relaxing to stitch:
I think that it will be better this way. I will be able to take it with me when I visit Jen. On her good days she can give me tips. She is the queen of handquilting. I just love watching her hands quilt. She is the one who taught me. We handquilted a quilt together a few years ago. It was so fun:
Memories! Good memories! Quilty Jen memories. So, now I am back to handquilting.
It has been ages, but I am going to link up with The Needle and Thread Network
