A bit of quilting going on...

A couple of lazy summer days have allowed me a bit of time to sew...

A couple of little quilts for Leicestershire Project Linus



and finally I've started the hand quilting on my Irish Chain.

Your quilting is beautiful. Keep up the good work. Hope you have more leisure days to squeeze it into.

I love both of them but the top one is my favorite. I adore red.

Katherine said...

So very lovely, Jane! I love red and admire your beautiful hand quilting. Yum!

Your hand quilting is gorgeous, and I'm awed that you have started to hand quilt a double bed quilt! The Linus quilts look beautiful, and I've just sent nearly all the quilts I had to the Leicester Royal Infirmary, so am ready for more!

I love how Irish Chains lend themselves to some wonderful spaces to show off hand quilting. Looks beautiful.

I love the fabric choices in #1 and that beautiful hand quilting in #2.

I didn't realize that you were hand quilting this particular (so pretty!) Quilt. You must have thought I was crazy to suggest you would be able to finish in a weekend! Silly :)
