This is the quilt I have been working on recently. It is essentially a utility quilt as I pieced it together with bits and pieces of my grandmothers leftover fabrics. The quilt top itself was put together years and years ago, but I've only been hand quilting it for just over a month now.
It has some fabrics in it with a very tight weave (the white fabric especially) and so it has felt like I'm wrestling with a bear sometimes. I will probably never attempt to hand quilt another quilt with this type of fabric, but I am glad I made the effort for this one as hand quilting was my grandmothers specialty.
I'm finally, finally quilting clear out to the edges and it actually feels like I'm gaining ground. Maybe it will actually be finished some day soon!
