From the end of January till now I've quilted 24 of this quilt's 56 squared and 2 of its 24 stars. I admire the speed at which machine quilters can finish quilts but I prefer the look of hand quilted quilts so I continue along at my snail's pace. Part of the slowness comes from how hard hand quilting is on my fingers: they can only quilt for so long.
I really thought I might be able finish this quilt in March but then I remembered that the outside edge of a quilt, whether blocks or border, is nearly always bigger than the center of the quilt and will take longer. Sigh.
You can see we have a sunny day today: the shine through the window highlights one small square of this quilt. Yeah for a sunny day! Fun photo, huh?
I wish my goal for March were to finish this quilt but it isn't. Instead, my goal is to finish hand quilting at least 12 stars and at least 12 squares. I'd be satisfied with a double dozen.
