This blog was created to document my journey learning to quilt by hand. However it has evolved to much more. Some of the things I blog about are: machine quilting, setting up and designing my new small home and life in general. I will add other adventures as I embark upon them.

Yesterday, Saturday was so gloomy and depressing I stayed in and quilted. This is my first hand quilted item. A Christmas table topper which reverses for Valentines day.
Here it is with the center quilted with cross hatch.
And the beginning of the boarder:
I am doing a scattering of stars? snowflakes? in different sizes.
And now for the back of the quilt:
Hard to see the stitching because the lights bring out the sparkles in the materials.
