Hand Quilting

Say what???? Yes I pulled out my latest and it seems forever Seven Sisters quilt and I did some hand quilting last night. This quilt sits in my family room staring at me constantly daring me to pick it up and do some quilting. It really wants to be finished so it can be loved and I don't seem to be cooperating. :(

I really don't have that much more to do - maybe one or two rows but I slowed to a complete stop because I was having pain in my thumbs. You do know that if you don't work on something that it never gets finished. My thumbs seem to be okay now and I so hope that this will set a trend for the next year. :)

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year! Stay warm - it is bitter cold out...brrrrr. I plan to ring in the new year nice and cozy and warm in my family room with a fire in the fireplace and quilting away on this quilt. I can't really think of anything better. :)

Linking up with Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy's Quilts.

LOVE that the seven sisters quilt is getting some attention! These quilts always make me smile. I have my frame up in the bedroom..... with the trip quilt staring at me asking for stitches. Maybe he will get a few today. Enjoy the stitching and hope you have a nice cozy New Years.

So happy to see your Seven Sisters quilt again. I intend to say goodbye to 2017 exactly as you. Slow stitching and a glass of wine is all I am asking for. Have a wonderful New Year, may it be full of scraps and health. ;^)

We are having family over for dinner and New Year’s Eve celebrations. I hope to get my stitching in earlier in the day before everyone arrives. The seven sisters quilt just wants to be done! Have fun stitching today!

Hi,
Beautiful Quilt! Keep at it a little at a time and you'll get there for sure. Have a great New Year!

Hi Ellen

Love the colour of the little nine patches. On Ringo Lake looks like it will be a beaut! Looks like it could be the water/sky/sunset etc. Glad to see one of the beautiful Seven Sisters quilts getting the last bit of attention needed to be a completion.

Love sis

It will get finished in time! We were invited out, but opted to stay at home and cook homemade pizza and while my husband watches a movie I will hand quilt. I agree it doesn't get better than that!

It was 4 degrees here when I woke up this morning. I know it is colder for many other folks. I have several projects that have been staring at me recently. I hope you finish quilting this beautiful project soon. Happy New Year.
