I’m back to hand quilting Raining Cats and Dogs. I’m enjoying it again. I’m working on outlining with the cream colored thread. I just finished the third block in the first row. Once I get all the blocks done, I’ll work on quilting some other part. I see this as a very long term project.
Here’s a close up of my quilting. I’m working on consistency and straightness. Sometimes I get it spot on, other times I can see I need more practice! 🙂
This is one of those quilts that will be on the wall or on display some where. For right now, I’m using the hand quilting frame I bought from a friend of DezertSuz some months ago. I finally had the time to put it together a couple of weekends ago and while I had the quilt laying on top of it, I finally put it on and started quilting.
Of course the quilt is on wrong, so that might be part of the problem. I can’t remember all the details but by the time I received the frame, I had already gotten the quilt basted and ready for hand quilting. So I didn’t need to set up the frame. That’s partly why it took so long to get it set up in the first place. Anyway, I just laid the quilt on there and rolled it up. Next time I work on a hand quilting project, I’ll be able to put all the layers on without having to baste it!
Beautiful! I like the cat’s fur. 🙂
Thanks France! 🙂
It’s great to see the frame in action! Your project is so adorable, and you are working on the right things. Even is most important, and size comes later.
Thanks Susan! 🙂

It will be lovely to see a post about what you think of the frame when you later it up without basting. I keep thinking I would like a frame.
Great idea! It may take awhile as this is a long term project but I’ll keep this in mind for the next hand quilting project. 🙂 Thanks!
Very pretty! I have thought about getting a quilting frame. I do like the size of the one you got. The ones I have seen are so much bigger.
Thanks Amanda! The frame can be set up bigger. I think it can go all the way up to a Queen or a King but I didn’t need it that big right now. I saved the parts so that I could make it bigger if I need to later.
