My quilt group met this week for the first time since Lockdown began here in the UK in March. The hall we use has lots of safety measures in place, we have to clean as we go and wear face masks while inside. We can only meet in small groups at a time, but it felt so good to be back quilting again! I brought along my Grasshopper quilt that I am hand quilting, I haven't touched it in months, but I really want to get this done so I think this will be my take along focus project.
This was a Sarah Fielke BOM from a couple of years ago.
I love the texture of hand quilting and would hand quilt everything if I had the time and my hands would cooperate! I chose carefully, and I am happy with this one, I knew I wanted to hand quilt large hexagons in the background to go with the bees on the fabric :) I am using Aurifil 12wt for some big stitch quilting.
