After a nice lunch out with my hubby yesterday I got a few things done then I went in my sewing room and decided that I would handquilt the Little Fall Quilt I made recently.  Well, this morning my finger tips are a little tender, I had a leather thimble on and one of the seams was a little tough and the needle went through, OUCH!  I have only a little more to do and will work on it later after the morning tasks are completed.  Here's what it looks like so far.........

A few days ago I reviewed handquilting in my two Quilting Bibles and yesterday I picked up some quilting thread, while quilting thread is not vital I decided that I wanted my first attempt to be as successful as possible.  One of the two "bibles" showed quilting stitches that were a little less than perfect and referred to them as "primative quilting", keep that in mind when looking at the above photos.  While the stitches are FAR from even in length and spacing I am happy with the look and I think it will go just great with the rest of the stuff in my home. 

It's raining here again so I will probably be spending some more time in my sewing room, although I did see in an ad that Marden's Discount just recieved a shipment of batiks, hmmmmm will I be able to resist the temptation to see what they have?  I know saw a quilt a while back that was made with batiks, it was beautiful, of course it would be a gift for some unknown recipient as it would not go well with my decor.

Hope you have a great day.


  1. Your fall quilt is looking good! And just so you know, I've been known to do a lot of "primitive" quilting! LOL

  2. That was your kind of book... love the "primitive quilted" job you did... that is so gorgeous, what a perfect fall piece. Great Job Denise.

    Hope you have a great weekend... you got me plugged into fall cleaning... you should have had a link up I am on dust patrol on shelves above eye level... you know the ones that you only do every six months... bring on the sneezing...

    Have a great day...

    Hugs, Deb
