Eagle Creek Hand Quilting Class: Last Block Pieced



Several years ago, I took a beginning quilting/hand quilting class and of course got sucked into the tyranny of the urgent at the time and never finished the complete project. You may have read my earlier posts with my progress to date. Since then, I have tried to be diligent to take either my hexagons or this hand quilting project along in situations that I might be waiting for an appointment or more recently this summer, watching lots of this:


(I love this photo below...it was about 100 degrees and the coach brought almost frozen water balloons for batting!)


I am happy to report that I finished hand piecing my last block, the drunkards path. (above) The layout and fabric changed along the way a few times and the text background always really makes you think, too. You may recognize some of the fabric, Hollywood & Vines by Three Sisters for Moda and a Robin Pandolph Christmas line...so if you do, then you know just how long I've been at this?! Next up, to finish hand quilting the blocks - just in time for football that starts next Monday!

Good luck with the hand quilting! I like my machine for that part!

That is a great block Karen. I too get lots of hand stitching (more applique) finished while I'm waiting.

I just love this block! And you mitred the corners! Looks great - looking forward to seeing the finished quilt! The baseball looks fun...
