It feels like its been forever since I started quilting this quilt for our bed, but I'm finally more than 2/3 or maybe 3/4 finished. It's officially the largest quilt that I've ever hand quilted, and its only a double. I've been adding random areas of red straight line quilting and the occasional navy blue X, not just because it looks good but because it sure does break up my stitching to have a break of straight lines to quilt. All hinting at the tedium of the hand quilting aside, I know this quilt is going to look really amazing with the Amish applique quilt I bought at a Mud Sale back in March. Getting them together finished on the bed is definitely keeping me motivated to keep stitching.
