Big Stitch Baby Quilt – update

I continue to work on Q Man’s quilt. I’m using perle cotton and hand quilting it. In order to make the quilt more visually interesting I am NOT marking the quilting lines. I’m just doing the best I can to quilt straight lines. Some are, some aren’t, some sort of slant but I’m very pleased with the results thus far.

I have been drawing a crude circle in the middle. Again, it’s not perfect but that adds dimension to an otherwise very linear quilt. My ultimate goal would be to have the quilt finished by the East Cobb Quilt Guild fall show so I can enter it, but I feel fairly certain that goal isn’t attainable at this point. I just don’t have that kind of time, or heck, energy. That’s alright. I can enter the quilt in two more years and spend the fall and winter bundled up while quilting it.
