Boring Photo, Exciting Progress - W.i.P. Wednesday
In the past two weeks since I started I've finished about 3 square feet of quilting, so I'm probably about one twelfth finished. In those two weeks I was quilting without callouses. Now that I have my quilting fingers back I should be able to stitch for longer than 20 minutes at a time once a day. Unfortunately I'm working at the candy store again through Valentine's Day so that cuts down on my quilting time. I'm going to have to devote more time to quilting if I want to finish this by the end of March!
This would have been quilted with a Baptist Fan but I felt the need to begin in the middle, mostly because I didn't have a lot of extra batting or backing on three edges, so I'm working outward in fan/semi-circle shapes. I was wondering the other day if this might be a hand quilter's version of free motion quilting.
I'm linking to W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced which is being hosted by Jenelle of Echinops and Aster this week. Thank you, Jenelle. And Lee, too.
