One day I’ll be able to say I made a quilt entirely by hand.
Well, I can say that now, but not one I’d show off to anyone. The first quilt I made was entirely by hand…and I am a self-taught quilter. Go ahead, let your imagination run on that…yup, that’s what it looks like (eek). That’s a story for a different day.
Today I can celebrate that the hand piecing is complete on my queen sized appliqued yo-yo quilt.
You can see in the pic that the quilt is overlapped on the clothesline a pretty good bit. I haven’t pressed my piecing yet, and my drop is 4 strips of yo-yo’s on each side of a queen bed & it’s pretty generous top & bottom too.
Next up is basting, then let the hand quilting begin. I wonder if it will take 5 years to finish like the last one? Let’s hope not! But with that said, I am going to take a break from this project. It’s been 2 years to get it to this point and I really just want to look at something else for a while. To see other posts on this project (including pattern, etc.), click here.
I am diving into some wool for the winter.
