Ready to Quilt!

by Grace Thorne

Sunday was spent dreaming of future quilting while basting these flimsies.  Two tablerunners, 2 little quilts and 2 twin size are all ready for hoop, needle and thread.  Regardless of the hot weather, quilting goes on year round--for me anyway.  They will be free form quilted, as i do most of my quilts nowadays.  The larger amish style will be fans, the others outline quilted probably.  It isn't that i don't mark quilts to quilt anymore, it's just that i like the look of free form, especially with reproduction type quilts.  Either way, it's not a quilt until it's quilted....and for me that means by hand!

  1. Grace I so understand what you mean - me too I quilt almost exclusively by hand no matter how much use a quilt will get.
