I almost forgot to show you the last block of my Times Remembered quilt and the finished top. This is the largest quilt I have made and my first all appliqued quilt. The cat, heart in hand, eggs and hummingbirds were all done in wool. Everything else was needle-turned. If you recognize this Pat Sloan pattern, you will have noticed, that I changed the border from flowers and the words Times Remembered to lots of bees and butterflies. Hope I didn't ruin it by doing so.
It has been a year since I completed Times Remembered and I still don't know how to go about quilting it. This seems to be my trouble spot. Deciding how to quilt a quilt and if I should do it by hand or machine. I would love to do them all by hand. At present, seven quilts are waiting to be quilted and it sure would be nice to see some completed.
So, what I have decided is to machine quilt at least half of them. In order to do that, I need to adjust my quilting schedule and add some machine quilting time each week. Veranda Views BOM ends next month, so that will give me a little extra time, but it will also give me one more quilt that needs quilting! Oh dear, life as a quilter is not easy, is it?
Until next week.....happy quilting!
