This is slow going, this hand-quilting thing, isn't it?
Are you sick of work-in-progress pictures of this quilt yet? 'Cause sorry, here come a few more.
The quality of my hand-stitching varies wildly. I fear the stitches are a bit large in places, especially where I have used thicker fabrics.
This is a bit smaller and neater. I'm just winging it, really. Using a hoop most of the time. Any hints or tips would be very welcome. I learnt to use a thimble fairly quickly (and painfully).
I've quilted 13 of the 25 squares so far, at a rate of not quite one per day. Slow-and-steady. Doesn't make for very fascinating blogging I'm afraid.
Here's a cute pic of a sleeping boy as a reward for ploughing through the quilting post.
