Almost Finished Quilting
Kathy is hosting a Slow Sunday Stitching link up each week and I have been meaning to post frequently but somehow it doesn't always work out. Today she asked about the hoops that we are using. This quilt has been my test subject and I have tried quilting with a hoop, without a hoop and with a quilting frame. Each time I have tried something that I think would make it easier for me it just doesn't seem to be and I end up back to the hoop. I received this hoop from my Aunt Iris a couple of years ago. She was downsizing to move into a smaller residence and she gave me this hoop. I really do like it because it is a bit smaller and fits my body size a bit better than the larger hoops. This hoop will definitely become well used by me over time because I have so many plans and ideas for quilts that I want to hand quilt. Now that summer is nearly over it will certainly be a lot more comfortable to sit with a quilt in my lap for hand quilting - it is just so hot to do it in the summer!
