Slow progress


IMG_6253Progress is bound to be slow when you don’t work at something very much so I don’t have much progress to report on the quilting of Whimsy.  Now that the weather has cooled I plan to do a bit more hand quilting every night so the pace should improve… in theory…if I actually do sit down to quilt every night.  I’ll keep you posted.

I actually thought I had more of the quilt quilted than I actually do.  Another blogger whose blog I stumbled onto recently used an EQ file of her quilt to chart her progress in quilting a quilt.  I thought that was a great idea and I wasted invested some time today in creating a QuiltPro file of Whimsy to do the same.  The grey areas still need quilting.  The colored bits are done.

*Sigh*.  I really thought I was closer to halfway through.  Perhaps this chart will keep me focused!


  1. The chart looks like a great idea, and your hand quilting is incredible! Just take your time; it will finally get done! ---"Love"

  2. Hey, I'd say you have quite a bit done. I don't hand quilt at all, so it would never get done if it was up to me, LOL! Slow and steady wins the race.


  3. I'm sure that now with the fall season almost here, that you will have more time in the evenings to hand quilt. I'm afraid I have pretty much given up hand quilting except for very small quilts. Maybe someday I will do more of it, but for now, machine quilting works for me.
