Another Finish

I finished my Houses quilt on Sunday night.  Here it is fresh out of the drier.  A bit wrinkled but that will hang out.
The hand quilting took a month so I am still on track to finish one a month this year (it helps to have so many tops already made )

Happy Quilting
Tim

    1. Well I spend a lot of time quilting to get one a month done....at least 4 hours a day. It makes my hands sore sometimes but I think that all that quilting had just made for strong hands. I use a normal quilting hoop and usually #9 or 10 needle..the only thing I do different from many quilters is I use the thimble on my thumb and quilt away from myself rather than toward myself.....I don't know if that makes it any faster that is just how I do it
