I decided to hand quilt this quilt years ago and I finally completed it! I would work on it then put it away for a year then pull it out – you know how it goes. I do believe my final incentive was that I wanted it for the room we painted last summer. I had never hand quilted a quilt this large before and I can honestly say that I will probably never attempt that again. It is rewarding to look at it now as I do prefer the look of a hand quilting; the hours spent doing it though is crazy!
Here are photos of the completed quilt; I think it looks great with the antique iron headboard and frame.
At any rate it is a good start to the year when you can start checking things off your to-do list. I will get back to my wool applique quilt now and check that off my list next. I have so many projects I want to start, but my 2016 resolution is to finish projects I have already started and I am sticking to it.
