Do you ever feel like your project has become so much a part of your daily routine that you will be sad when it is finished? That’s how I feel about my Heart & Home quilt by Heart to Hand from Acorn Quilts. I’ve been slowly plodding away making progress on my quilt. Because it was intended to be a BOM (Block of the Month) project I guess it’s not unusual that I am still not finished. Since last week I have been able to cut out the applique pieces for the remaining blocks seven through twelve plus those destined for the borders. I’ve also lined up the foundation fabrics for each of the blocks and begun piecing them together. If this were the only project I were working on I most likely would be finished by now. But because I sandwich its progression in amongst everything else my Heart & Home quilt lingers on. Here is my most recent photo.
Since last Wednesday I have also taken on two small quilting projects. The first one is this sweet little hand-made wall hanging constructed by my youngest daughter’s mother-in-law. She had originally tried quilting it on her own but was dissatisfied with the results so she removed all of the stitching. My mind has been going crazy day-dreaming about which free motion stitch patterns to use. Take a look at the quilt.
The second quilting project arrived yesterday. My oldest daughter stopped by with my youngest granddaughter Miss M to deliver this modern quilt.
She’s been exploring the world of quilting searching for her own direction. My daughter has dabbled with traditional as well as paper-piecing. Paper piecing has turned out to be her favorite. While this quilt is not paper-pieced this is her first completed wall hanging. She has decided to free-motion quilt her smaller projects on her own leaving the larger ones for me. We briefly discussed her wish list for the free-motion quilting. With a visual picture painted in my mind she left her quilt in my possession. This too should be well under way by next week. Be sure to stop next week for updates.
