Remember this quilt? I pieced it last year ... and then promptly added it to the UFO pile.

Yesterday morning I thought of an interesting (and easy) pattern for machine-quilting it so I carefully pinned and basted it and got stuck into sewing it.

Long story short ... 8 hours later I gave up on the machine-quilting.

I'm now hand-stitching a simple running stitch around each flower and I really like how it's turning out. I can't wait to show you once I've finished.


  1. Hi Joanne, it looks great. The hand quilting really finished it off.

  2. your quilt looks so beautiful and love the way you are quilting it too.
    happy quilting!
