While relaxing at our family cottage, I was able to get some more hand quilting done. The days had been somewhat on the cool side and a quilt on my lap was very welcome to help keep me warm while sitting out on our screened-in porch. This week, it is back to hot weather and most welcome after a lot of below average temperatures.
One thing that I like to do when quilting the hexagon centers, is do three at a time. Six needles are on the go at the same time (two needles per hexagon). This way, my quilt gets turned less and I don't end up with a huge twisted quilt on my lap. Can you see the needles and thread on three of the marked hexagon centers?
here to see how it is done.
