Today I bought some fabric to do some quilting.

The top layer will be the patterned fabric, then the batting/wadding, and the plain pink will be the backing. I will hand quilt around each square.

I hope to make some placemats and a table runner.


  1. I'm working on a quilt set for my sister who is graduating from High School in a week and every stitch that I have done is by hand. my machine doesn't work so that's mainly why I'm doing it. But its been so much fun!! good luck on your quilt!

  2. Hi Jules - I don't have my sewing machine here with me, so all my sewing is done by hand too.

    I don't really 'enjoy' sewing with a is just a means to an end. But I do 'enjoy' hand sewing, especially the repetition of hand quilting. Very therapeutic and relaxing :o)

    I'm sure the quilt set you are working on will be lovely!

  3. i'm not very good with a machine, but I would like to learn how to use one better. I am used to sewing by hand because I do alot of embroidery and cross stitching. once its done I will have my hubby take a picture of it and I will post it! I'm sure your quilt will be wonderful as well.

  4. I look forward to seeing the picture of your finished work Jules :o)
