It's in the hoop - woohoo!


Got my Sugar Camp Quilt layered and basted last night. This is my first time using Hobbs wool batting - not quite sure what I think yet... The needle goes through it very smoothly, so that is a positive, but it did feel kind of lumpy/uneven while I was basting it - let you know what my feelings are when I have quilted a bit more.

Very nice, anxious to hear what you think about the wool.

Looks great from the back! Hand quilting is not something I would do, but I like to see quilts finished by hand. Sigh...wishing my grandma was around to teach me to use a thimble again...

OOOOOO!! Så bra!! Du har virkelig fremdrift om dagen :O) Inspirerende. Her har verden stått litt stille, vannkopper bidrar ofte til det ;O)

Jobber fortsatt med de tre siste blokkene til svennebrevet - skal bli ferdig - lover :O)

Modig av deg å gå igang med ny runde med håndquilting, men du er jo rå på dette så blir garantert nydelig ♥

Ha en fortsatt kreativ helg!!

Anne Ida,

Look forward to your opinion about the Hobbs wool batting. What other battings do you us and/or prefer? So far my favorite is Warm and Natural.

Your handquilting is so lovely. I am just not very good at holding those tiny needles, but am learning to love stick & stab technique with pearl cotton.
