Hand Quilt-Along Plus

I have actually made a bit more progress on my curvy flying geese!  The bag containing the quilt top sits next to my recliner and I’ll admit I usually reach for my computer rather than my hand sewing!
Another 5 have been done!

I haven’t just been sitting in front of my computer, I did finish a quilt top that I am donating to QoV to replace the quilt they gave to my dad at Christmas.  I did have to order the fabric since I didn’t have the red/white/blue fabrics here in Nevada with me.  Honestly, I have very little red in my stash at home either!  I followed the pattern by Jenny Doan at Missouri Star Quilt Company Nine-Patch Madness.

Another project is underway because one of my step-daughter’s is pregnant and due in July with a little girl!!  So very excited for the new addition to the family!  And this will be the first girl of her generation on my husband’s side of the family.  They are going to name her Liberty Belle and red/white/blue is the theme of her nursery!  Well, I just happen to have some fabric in the right colors now and I’m creating the pattern for this quilt in my head and using some of the HSTs from the Nine Patch Madness quilt.  Win/win!!

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.


Sassy --> That's me!

How exciting to be looking forward to welcoming a baby girl into the family! And, 5 geese down means 5 less to do! That Valor quilt pattern looks amazing too, Sassy!

I love the QoV red white and blue quilt, they are some of my favourite colours and always make the quilts stunning.

Many congratulations on the new addition to the family. Perhaps she will be born on July 4th which will make it even more appropriate for her lovely name. A good friend of ours had a granddaughter and she was the first girl on his side of the family in five generations so is throughly spoilt by them!!!!

Can't wait to see the finishes.

Hugs, Susie xx

Ha, I came by to see today's and discovered that in the mess of school, I missed the last post! Both of those projects are wonderful. I love the name for the little girl! Thanks for the link on the soldier quilt. I like the pattern - it gives the impression of stars, and then I look closely and I think there really aren't any!
