Still quilting

I'm thinking it's about time for an update on All at Sea.I'm still quilting, though to be honest I'm going through one of those phases where I'm easily distracted.  There is progress though.  I'm maybe 2/3rds of the way through, possibly even a little more.  It feels like time to knuckle down a bit now.

Your stitches are so neat. Do you use a hoop? I don't hand quilt often, but when I do I find it easier on my hands to omit the hoop.

It's been a while since we have seen this one. Looking good.

Omigosh this is simply delicious -- I love the hand quilting and miss being able to do any of my own. Cannot wait to see this one out and about for its beauty shots once finished!

2/3rds sounds like you are making great progress. The detail you are adding through quilting is lovely.

Cathy said...

What beautiful quilting!

I was just looking at your previous posts on this quilt. I always enjoy the way you pieced the different lighthouses. And love the blues. It is hot but I hope you keep plugging away.

I do wish I was still able to do lots of hand quilting, hands went on strike a while ago!! Your stitches are beautifully even and I love the organic look to your quilting.

Monica said...

What great photos! The colours really sing here, and I'm drooling once again over that leafy white fabric. And the quilting looks great too!

Marly said...

Lovely quilting! I'm glad to see the lighthouses are moving forward; it's such a lovely quilt.

Are your quilting stitches the same length at the back as the front?
I'm a lazy hand quilter so mine are shorter at the back which actually annoys me, so I should put more effort into it clearly!
Ive even occasionally run another line iof stitches over the back fabric stitches so it looked the same lol
Now there's a confession!

You are making good progress. It will be done before you know it!

A little bit here and there adds up too. I'm at that point with my quilt in the hoop, so easily distracted. Didn't get any stitching in the last two nights! Your stitching is looking marvelous though!

Lovely handquilting!!

Kathy said...

It's funny I'm just about to ask the same question as Libby from TN, although I'm pretty sure you use a hoop. But you get so much done on these big quilts, I need to double check!

Sounds like you are making great progress with this one. Love you mulitcolour quilting and the second photo with the printed words.

I find the quilting is the hardest part . Aside from time consuming I find it's where I lose steam . But the weather means sitting outside quilting ?
