On my lap today...

is a handquilting project. Finally it is cool enough to get the hanquilting going again.

This is the dresdenplate quilt I am working on. I used wool batting so it is nice and warm to have on my lap while quilting.

It sure feels good to be handquilting again. Summer is too hot for me to have a quilt on my lap.

I am using this thread to quilt with. It is originally a embroidery floss, made of silk. It is onestranded and gives the quilt a really soft touch.
The quilt is basted on a longarm machine, it is the yellow thread you see. I don`t use a frame while quilting it.

Happy Quilting

  1. I have never quilted with embroidery floss - I will need to give it a try one day.

  2. I too love hand quilting...your work is marvelous. I have an applique quilt on the frame now, and another in my lap hoop...slow progress and no photos yet. Happy quilting.
