Still Hand Quilting...

It's cold, wet and miserable outside...perfect weather to sit and sew..
I'm still hand- quilting my Dresden and Dollies quilt. It's a lot of work ,but I'm really enjoying it, while I watch another episode of North and South...oh those beautiful gowns, and that Ashton!
I was hoping to see some quilts , but nothing so far....

The Schnibbles times two book came in the mail yesterday...gorgeous small quilts to make, perfect for using up some 5" squares that I had no idea what to do with. It will be nice to do a small quilt that won't take up too much time...
The other book I've had for a while, great quilting patterns and ideas... but still have not used any of them, perhaps I may find something suitable in the book for the borders of the D & D quilt..
Until next time...Happy stitching...♥

  1. Hi Julia, Your D & D quilt is so pretty and how nice to have new books and a movie to enjoy during the rainy weather. I'll be anxious to see what project you choose from these books.

  2. I agree Julia it is just the best time to be inside and sewing.
    Hope you enjoyed your movie.

  4. The quilt is looking good Julia and glad that you are enjoying the quilting. We recently bought that quilting book as a gift for a friend who has bought a new machine. Hope she enjoys it.

  8. Your quilt is looking so pretty! Those books that you have are great - I have the Schibbles book too, but haven't made a thing out of it. Probably soon as I have a hard time not picking up those charm packs.

  10. So, I'm guessing that it's fall to winter there and here in Texas, we're burning up around 85 to 92 degrees.
