An old quilting project

It is so cold out I finally hauled out an old hand quilting project I've worked on off and on for a few years. Got most of the tree block done tonight - but need to work up that callous on my bottom finger again!

Very lovely! I do love the look of handquilting. I have a few very special quilts that I slowly handquilt on from time to time.

I will have to do the same thing when I get my Dear Jane out of the closet today.
Your quilt looks great!!

It certainly is cold enough to hand quilt...keeps your hands busy and your body warm. Love your old project.

Your handquilting is just wonderful. I give high marks to people who have the patience to do that. I did one quilt once and that was as far as I got. Now, sad to say, I send them out.

Do I Spy (with my own little eye) Primitive Primer??
If your neighborhood is as frigid as mine this is a perfect way to spend the day!

Dawn,

Do you pin baste and then take the pins out as you quilt?

Your quilt will look awesome when it is finished. I have made two of them! It is one of my favorite patterns.

The first few days returning to hand-quilting is a bit painful no?! Can spot some old favorite fabrics in your quilt!
