Hand Quilt Along – 22/12/19

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to start by wishing you all a very happy Christmas and a great new year for 2020! This year has been trying as I lost my grandad and my great-uncle and my grandma is also facing health issues. But 2019 has also brought great joy with watching Clark grow into the cutest little boy and meeting new friends.

Now, onto the quilt along! I have actually been working on my English paper piecing quilt again and it is getting so close to the end!

As you may be able to see, I only have a little bit on the side left to quilt and then I will be cutting the excess away and sewing the border on, yay!

Again, I hope you have a marvellous festive season!

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.

  2. Hi Emma! Life has many highs and lows. Little Clark is definitely the high ❤️. I’m sure your Christmas is either on full swing or over, but from half way around the world, I’m glad you are my friend! And Merry Christmas! 😊❤️❤️❤️

    • Thank you so much Tracy, we had a quiet Christmas but it was lovely being just the three of us. Sending love and I hope you’ve had a wonderful festive season with your family 🥰


  3. Exciting! Happy Dance around the corner. It’s hard sometimes to see through the lows and then the highs somehow balance things out. My thoughts will be with you for your grandma. Have a wonderful Christmas and see you next posting 🙂 Sharon

  4. Well done on fitting ANY hand quilting in amongst your new responsibilities! Young Clark is going to be one cosy boy when winter comes around again, and meanwhile the hexie quilt is a lovely surface for him to play on. Good work, and have a lovely Christmas.

    • Thank you Kate, I’m hoping we can bring the quilt to France with us next month to shield us from the cold temperatures! I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas too 😘

    So sorry to hear about your family. I, myself, just lost my grandpa on the 20th. Your quilt is looking good though!

  7. Wow Emma, you are so close to finishing this! It is hard saying goodbye to the older ones we love, but God is great and filling in with some wonderful joys like Clark, to ease the sadness. Wishing you a Christmas full of Hope and Joy!

    I missed getting around to the blogs last time, so it’s great to see what you’ve been doing. By now, it’s probably further along, maybe even bordered!
