Quilting My Travels


 I am currently enjoying hand quilting my "AROUND THE WORLD" quilt, featuring the fabrics and representations from the 90 countries we have visited. 


Each fabric calls for a different quilting motif. Sometimes shadowing the images within, while others work best with traditional patterns. I'm using a combination of hand quilting thread and pearl cotton for more plain areas. 



 The quilting on this king size quilt has gone much faster than I thought and should be done within a month.


 In the meantime I continue to work on piecing several other quilts: 2 for retirees from my former school, my 6th wedding quilt for my grandnephew and a undesignated quilt from a B&W swap.
 Watch for those being posted.
 Happy Quilting!
