The Last of the Hand-quilting for the Season
For this week's finish, I got these two blocks hand-quilted (along with a bit of the border). I can usually do about 3 per week just sitting in front of the TV in the evening. This makes 48 out of 53 blocks done on this quilt. I started in November.
The pattern is called Lucky Star. I like it because it gives the illusion of curved pieces.
Hand-quilting season is about to come to an end. I can see the writing on the wall. The temperatures here in southern Nevada are warming enough that it will soon be too hot for me to hold the quilt in my lap. So it looks like this quilt will have to wait until next winter to get completely finished. The only good news about that, is that hand-quilting season gives way to hand-piecing season. :-)
