Baltimore Blue Progress

I am hand quilting this in a hoop. I haven't worked on it in forever, but hope to finish it in the next few months.

Dear Hannah Quilt

Here are the first four block that I completed awhile back. I will be working on both the Applique Delights and Dear Hannah at the same time. I am doing the Applique Delights in mostly brights and the Dear Hannah in Ricky Tims hand dyed fabrics for the most part.





Block 1 from Applique Delights

Here is block 1 completed but not trimmed down to size.
Block 2 is prepped for hand applique.

Stephen's quilt!

It is finally finished except for the label! And in time for his birthday which is Thursday!  He will actually get it next Sunday for the party. What a relief! The music fabric is for his band, the gold is his love of Saints football, the green is his school colors along with the white. I don't know how well you can see in these pictures but some of the previous ones show the fleur de leis I quilted in the large white areas. That represents his being born and raised a cajun! The back fabric was a no brainer when I saw it, he is gonna love that lol. He has always loved quilts (he owns 7 of the ones I have made lol), as a small child he would cry if he didn't get a new one for his birthday. Now he is turning 16, is 6'2 1/2 " and still snuggles with a quilt all the time. He has outgrown his (this one is queen size!) and uses one of his mom's or his dad's. He told everyone at his 6th birthday that I put a lot of love and blood in my quilts lol. He would spend alot of time here while I quilted and I would poke myself and bleed. This one too Stephen has alot of love, prayers and blood in it my gentle giant. Here is a link to other Slow Stitching Sunday posts. Slow Stitching Sunday

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!
