Slow Stitching Sunday - Still plugging away

I am still hand quilting on grandson's quilt. I have reached the middle and a little more now. I was concerned that the quilting I had done in the hoop in the center would need to be redone when I reached it in the frame, but it is great! So onward to the end! Maybe, just maybe I will finish before his birthday!

Here is a link to some other slow stitching Sunday posts! enjoy! thanks Kathy!

Slow Stitching Sunday - Updates on quilts

Here is the updated (as of last night) picture of Stephen's quilt. I am almost half way across the "row" I am quilting. Hopefully I will be able to roll it down tonight or tomorrow night after work.

 This is the Baltimore Blue that will be mine! I am hand quilting it in a hoop and Stephens is on the floor frame.
 This is the new hand applique quilt I am starting. I have the first block ready to work on. Maybe start sewing the pieces down tonight?
I also have quilted diamonds started from a long time ago that hasn't been worked on in forever. Dear Hannah that has been started but not very far along. Hopefully once Stephen's is done ( I am trying for his birthday the beginning of August) I will alternate through the rest and make some progress on all of them since I am finally able to do some after work some nights, It just took awhile to settle in to a new pattern with working full time.

I rolled the quilt down last night!

No pictures (maybe I will be able to get one tonight) but the bottom border is no longer in sight! Any progress at this point is good and exciting to me lol.

Update on status of quilt

It's been awhile but I have worked on it (among a few baby quilts and other things.) Now I am working again full time (since November) so the quilting has had to slow down ALOT. My goal is to finish hand quilting this by his birthday in August. It is queen size and there is still a LONG way to go, but I am trying!
