Hand Quilting Continued


Here is the first motif hand quilted on my Double Irish Chain. This is the first of 20 so it is going to take awhile. The green border fabric is very hard to quilt through so it took me a long time to do the first row. The chicken is looking on in horror at the poor quality of my stitches. Maybe its not a maveric chicken. Maybe it belongs to the quilt police!

Love the motif, can't wait to see the done deal.
I give you a lot of credit to do this; I haven't hand quilted in years.

Your chicken looks nervous! Have she seen Chicken Run? Maybe she needs a good laugh! The quilting looks beautiful, btw!

Fiona said...

Well I think your quilting looks great, the chicken's probably jealous!

if your chicken is part of the quilt police maybe you should make a brown paper bag to cover his head with :-)

Hee hee! that's funny! I agree with Fiona, he's probably jealous.

The quilting looks great from here! Keep up the good work!

lol the quilt police...no worries, I have it on good authority they are a myth *VBS*... tell the chicken not to worry about those stitches they will be great!

I think it looks pretty snazzy - I'd send that chicken out to his coop.

Tonya R said...

Lily said...

LOL Joyce I was just admiring your stitching when I saw you weren't happy with it!!! It's fantastic. Naughty chicken!

Darcie said...

Perhaps not horror, Joyce. Perhaps she's jealous! It's looking quite lovely...only 19 to go!

Karen said...

Yeah, the chicken just wants to quilt, too!

Judy said...

I think it looks fabulous Joyce!! What are you using to mark your design on the white? I need something good that washes out super easy.

It's looking really great!

I like the motif you have chosen. And your little chicken seems to like it too.
