I’ve been hand quilting in the evening while watching TV. Hand quilting is very relaxing, but it takes a long time.
I started this little quilt long ago. One of my first books was about Amish quilts. This is one that I made from this book. It is called Rail Fence. I made and finished several small quilts from that book, but this one was put aside and forgotten.
Rail Fence is quilted in the ditch. The quilting doesn’t show. It just holds the quilt together. Some of the black squares are quilted with a medallion. I don’t have the pattern but I can copy it to quilt the remainder of the squares.
There are other partially hand quilted small quilts in the UFO pile. There is no law that says that I can’t finish them by machine quilting. At least they would be finished. I also have several old tops that were never quilted. Piecing is quicker than quilting.
During the day, I have been working on the quilt that uses the embroidery squares that I made last summer. The top should be finished soon.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
