Hand Quilt Along – 16/09/18

Happy Sunday everyone!
I hope you have been well, I have been tired but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I will be getting induced this week if baby doesn’t decide to come out on his own and it’s a huge relief as I’m just feeling so so drained. I am happy with the progress I’ve made on my EPP this time, it will not be finished in time for baby but that’s okay, I’m still enjoying the slow stitching and that is what matters. Plus, it’s actually quite big so he will still get plenty of use from it.


It is getting closer and closer and I still love the organised randomness of the colours and patterns. I think I might be done with the top in 2-3 updates before I start the quilting and I can’t wait!

As usual, don’t forget to check the other awesome projects from our group!

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  1. He’ll never know it didn’t arrive at the same time as he did. Take your time, enjoy the process and create not one, but two amazing things!
