I love to have a hand quilting project on the go at all times, I pieced my version of a Welsh quilt held by the V & A last autumn, so that I could have something to hand quilt. I blogged about the quilt back in November, you can read about it HERE.
It has been too hot this summer for hand quilting, especially as I am using a wool batting; but now it is turning cooler I am looking forward to sitting under it as I work :) I brought it with me to a friend's house this morning when I went for coffee and managed to get a little done in between chatting and eating cake!
I have finished the centre square and started on the first cable border.
I normally choose a patterned backing fabric to hide my hand quilting stitches, but this time I bought a plain cream tone on tone as I want to replicate the look of a wholecloth quilt on the back. I am happy with the way it is progressing.
