You never know what you'll find while cleaning and organizing. I decided to tackle my closet. I have a walk-in closet that is so full of tubs, etc. that I can barely walk in it.
While going through the tubs, I found 3 quilts that I needed to finish. Two of them only needed the border quilted and then the binding added. Doesn't sound like a lot of work, but if you quilt, you know it takes time.
I never machine quilt. I use my machine to piece the quilt but all the quilting is done by hand. It takes forever and a day to finish a quilt. It took me a total of 4 days just to finish hand-quilting the border and then add the binding. Another process done by hand stitching.
I saw this pattern on Simply Quilts on HGTV. It's been off the air for a few years and that is when I first started making this quilt. So, I'm thinking maybe 3 or 4 yrs ago.
I am so happy to finally finish this. Here are some close-ups of the embroidered leaves and the hand quilting. The quilt is heavily hand-quilted with circles of inter-twining hearts.
till next time...
