Hand Quilt Along

I have been putting off finishing this quilt top because I really don't like hand sewing - my arthritis really hates it!  However, I really want to finish this top with its 300+ flying geese that need to be curved with small hand stitches.  To my shame, I only have 16 done, but I'll press on as soon as the flu that has a grip on my household goes away.

If you have a hand quilting or hand stitching project, and would like to join our group, contact Kathy at the link below.

That's a lot of geese! Well done at getting 16 done! The flu this year is nasty, so look after yourself.

Hi Sassy, hope you all feel better soon. And that wellness allows you to continue to make progress on your project.

You'll get there!

But now there are 16 less to do!! And that is what this group is all about, a little bit of progress, and a lot of encouragement! Hope your house is on the mend, and you are all feeling better now.

I admire you for hand quilting, something I have never done but it is on my To Do List to try!! I think time and patience are what's lacking with me!!! Hope you and the rest of yours feel better soon. I am busy trying to avoid everyone who has colds and flu at the moment, especially this Australian Flu which seems to be sweeping our country at the moment!!! I don't need anything else at the moment thank you!!! Good luck with the rest of the Geese. Hugs, Susie xx

I’m looking forward to seeing this come together! Love the black and aqua ... hoping that the flu soon leaves, we have had nasty colds here.

That is a lot of flying geese! I love the colors of the one you showed. This will be a wonderful quilt when finished.
