{Post 1,562} A Tiny Bit of Hand Quilting Progress

I finished the piecing of this quilt in record time. Now it has languished for over 9 years, waiting to be finished. The pattern is called Mennonite Mosaic. I saw it on someone else's blog and then happened upon the pattern. I tried to sell it as a top several times, and eventually I started hand-quilting it. You can see some of the diagonal quilting lines in the photo. It measures 88" square.

I moved it out to the kitchen. I am using a Hera marker for marking the lines. I think it's over halfway quilted,but it's hard to tell. None of the border is finished. Why did I bring it to the kitchen? I like to mark the lines using the table, then I quilt w/o a hoop, just hold it in my lap. I've made a lot of progress in the past week or so. It is relaxing to me to hand-quilt.
