Work In Progress Wednesday - June 27

Two weeks ago Sharon asked if people were interested in joining her for Work In Progress Wednesday. It immediately made me think of all those quilt tops in my cupboard that needs to be quilted. I decided to start with a centre medallion of the Vintage Valentine quilt I made in 2007. It’s all done by hand. The original pattern has 12 blocks around it, but I added a border of 5 cm or 2 inch squares. I never wrote about this appliqué quilt on my blog, so I’ll share a few progress photo’s.
This is the last photo I made at the time.
And this is yesterday’s photo. I was basting the 3 layers with running stitches. The round piece next to my scissors is a magnet, it’s a safe place for my needle when I don’t use it. It safes me a lot of time searching for it!
My daughter helped me holding the quilt so I could take a photo. There’s a bigger photo at my Flickr-page.
The size is 90 x 100 cm or 35½ x 39½ inch. I’m going to hand quilt it.

  1. Good on you taking on the challenge, I must admit that I have no outstanding project apart from a table runner that was put to one side whilst I did my daughter`s birthday sampler. That is now finnished but I have not returned to the runner as I am having a go at CQ and I know once I pick up the runner the CQ has no chance!!
