Like this bee, I have been busy this week! I have worked on hand-quilting my liberated squirrel quilt most days this week, including today. I have found that I can see better to hand quilt outside with natural light. I sit in a comfortable chair in our gazebo and stitch away while my husband reads a book. By 830pm, it is getting too dark to see what I am doing so that was quitting time this week.
I took a few pictures of my progress this week.
I even did a few stitches in one of the squares in the next border.
This project is addicting. I can't wait to spend more time this coming week quilting in the gazebo!
Christine and I got together one evening this past week and tried out Julie Herman's sidekick ruler. I made this table topper out of some fall fabrics I had in my stash. I will be machine quilting this project.
We are going to try out another of Julie's patterns that uses the Hex N More ruler this week. It is fun to try out some new tools!
