FInally...back to some hand quilting

I am finishing up my two year term as president of our Neuse Quilters Guild and my personal quilting has suffered to say the least...
So this summer, at our guild meetings, I am preparing to do some hand quilting.

You may remember my post  on my sunflower quilt from May 10, 2011
where I showed you my inspiration and progress on it.

Well, here it is all pinned and machine grid quilted and I am preparing to hand quilt around each sunflower
and the sashing and borders.

Which color thread to use...white, cream, or green?????

Packed all up in my hippie bag 
and ready for Wednesday's meeting...I will show you my work
along the way...

Give away time 

 over at 

take a look at Trish's lovely blog!!

Blessings all,


  1. I'm kinda old fashioned! I like the cream thread!! But the "try something new" in me says green would sure be fun!! It is a lovely quilt!!


  2. You do a lovely job of quilting! Looks too hard for me. I enjoy more the simple sewing squares or triangles together and need to get back to even doing that! Have a wonderful time at your guild. Nancy

  3. This will finish up so sweet with your hand stitches outlining the big sunflowers!

  4. The hand quilting will make this quilt even more special.

    What color did you decide on? Have you ever considered using perle cotton thread for chunky hand quilting?

    1. thanks Amy, I think I will check our my perle cotton and try some...I will post later.

  5. Pretty quilt - enjoy the hand quilting :)
