I haven't posted here yet - haven't had the time. But I wanted to show you what my current hand-quilting project is...
This picture was taken before I got it basted, when it was still a top. I've got most of the squares quilted and am debating what to do with the borders. I put a wool batting in this one, as I love how a wool quilt puffs up with the quilting. I quilt in a round hoop that is 14" across. I know an 18" hoop is the traditional size, but my arms are just not long enough to reach across that far (or maybe it's that my belly is so big my arms can't reach? Whichever).
I've been working on this quilt for a year and a half now - hopefully I'll have it finished in time to hang for this year's Halloween..
