Even MORE Quilt Updates...

Quote for the Day:

without abandoning my principles one iota."
~Gustave Courbet

This quilt update is about my customer's Sailboat Quilt that I've been hand quilting.  


I am almost finished with the second of four rows of sailboats!  I would estimate that I'm about 40% done with the entire quilt at this point.  

Here's a close-up of one of the most recent blocks that I've worked on...


Since the quilt isn't that big, I loaded it into my frame "sideways"...that's why the boats are on their sides.  Maybe we should name the quilt "Titanic" since the boats are all on their sides???

  1. I just love this quilt for some reason. It's so boyish I guess? Your hand quilting is certainly going to add to it's charm!

  3. Did that person make the quilt, or was it an antique? or did you make it :)
