A few weeks ago I shared a few tantalising pictures of the hand quilting I’ve been working on in the evenings and I thought you might like to see a few more pictures and an update on progress.
I have made my way to the bottom edge and now only have a bit of sky to complete on the top before I move on to the borders.
I’ve been trying to be quite organic with the quilting and not worry too much about it being exactly right. For most of the landscape I’ve tried to echo the shape spacing the intervals between quilting lines at about 1”.
In the case of the mountains I took my daughter’s advice and quilted in the relief you might see on the edge of a mountain range.
And for the snow I’ve done my best to create snow drifts :o) Don’t those cows look happy to be frolicking in the snow! LOL
I’ve left the houses to pretty much stand alone and haven’t added quilting in buildings as I wanted them to kind of puff up against the background.
I’m so excited to see the finish line in sight for this project after too many years of it being “in progress”.
Until next time...♥
