{745} H & G Coming Along

I didn't think I'd have time to sew or post while I was here, but I was wrong on both accounts.  Here is my H & G quilt in its entirety...if I knew more about Photoshop, I'd draw an arrow on the picture to point out the quilted area.  As it is, I'll just have to use row numbers.

I have the bottom four row of blocks completely quilted.  I have removed the basting stitches where the quilting is finished because it gives me a visual for where I am in the process.


When I was in Florida a few weeks ago, I quilted all around the border.  All half blocks and 4 quarter blocks.  Here is a closer picture.


You can see in the last picture (below) that I've quilted around each appliqued block (and between each section alongside the seam) as well as where the four "empty" corners meet.


On the way home I will quilt around more of the appliqued sections...those don't have to be marked.  The marking would be difficult in the vehicle.  I have the first 6 rows of appliqued shapes quilted around.  It really IS moving along quickly!
