I got done attaching the circles to the quilt row last night.  More tv was watched yesterday than I normally do but I made good progress.  I will start to cut out the next row tomorrow.   I want to concentrate on Star Crazy today instead in between doing other things that need doing here at home.  Today will not be a major sewing day.

Joseph’s Coat – the circles:


Star Crazy – this much left to do on this row – plus the straight lines on the border.  When I crank it down again I will have one section left of pieced pieces to quilt – I am not reaching the top row of the star blocks and I will have the row of the half square triangles above them as well to do.  The rest of the quilt will go quickly once I get the pieced areas done – straight lines go fast normally.


My aim is to get the quilting done by May 18th – that will have been 5 months on the quilting frame and will be the fastest I remember getting a quilt off of the frame – no reason for the challenge to myself 0ther than that will mean I can get another quilt on the frame – my goal is to get caught up with my hand quilting!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Oh Karen: this is so beautiful…I can’t imagine your satisfaction when it is finally finished. What will you do with it? Will it be loved by one of your family, or just in view for you to love…I so love the colours too!
    Spring is here, hard to stay inside isn’t it?

    Both quilts are so magnificent! In this day and age of instant/immediate/quick finishes, these are a wonderful reminder of where this craft came from!!! Some of my friends have gone back to hand piecing/quilting because they can no longer manipulate large/heavy items at the machine……also, they no longer need to make the “dorm room” quilts that took such hard wear!!! We often do come “full circle” and that may be a “good thing”!! Hugs, Doreen

    I still think it’s so amazing that you hand quilt all of your quilts. What an accomplishment!

    I love watching your progress on your quilts. I’ve been watching the Star Crazy progress over the months and I’m thinking that I might get a floor frame so that I can have a quilt set up and just quilt when I have an odd moment, I usually put mine in a hoop and have to set it up each time I want to quilt which is a bit of a pain.
