Still handquilting my circles...

Mind you, given that this is the first of three circle quilts this year, I may be able to use that as a post title until sometime in 2018.

I've not posted about this for a while as I'm trying to avoid endless pictures that all look pretty much the same, but I have been quietly making progress.  I have spent ages worrying about whether I like the way I am quilting this, but have reached a point where I just have to let that go; I have done far too much to reconsider.  It's the blank areas I'm not keen on really, so if push comes to shove I can go back and put in some extra stitching at some point.  


It would look better laid out flat but there was a cat lurking, and I just didn't want to have that argument today!

For the first time in a few weeks I'll link up with Kathy today for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Looks great! Your quilting is adding a neat texture to your circles and the background.

Your quilting is beautiful!...I've just started mine and had the same thought, if it needs more I'll go back and do it later when I have an idea!

It is funny how you can chase round the house trying to catch a cat to go the vets for example but when you lay a quilt or a box down - you can assure yourself of success lol
Now I very much like the quilting your doing, some of the circles look plumped a little by it and somehow even more huggable-around-you.
Is it the wording strips that bother you, are they the plain areas?
Maybe you could do strategic French knots lol

Lovely quilting. I always find it a puzzle to arrive at the right amount of quilting. If I'm not careful the quilting defeats its own object.

I like the way it is coming together a lot, personally. And I totally understand the argument with the cat. Sometimes it is just not worth it!

Great work, I don't mind seeing pictures of progress even if similar to previous photos,
I enjoy process because that is the real stuff of any project.

I really like the way you are quilting this. It is so pretty.

Quilter Kathy said...

That made me smile... done too much to reconsider :)
So true! I'm happy to add in more stitches but really dislike removing ones already put in!
Enjoy your circle quilting!!!

It's beautiful hand stitching and I'm sure you could use that title for a long time. I like the image of the cat lurking...they do tend to lurk don't they.
