Hand Quilting ; Moving Forward

Everyone is finally back to school after Thanksgiving vacation ; I had Brent and Kate here on Tuesday for the day. The weather was very mild that day; close to sixty degrees. I did some yard work, they could ride bikes and scooters with just their light jackets on, and my youngest son took them to a local park in the afternoon.

It seemed as if  one day I put out all the Christmas decorations, with snowmen all over the living room, and then next day, Spring arrived!

The hand quilting is moving forward on the Botanical quilt. I finally finished up this block…

I am ready to start on the last one now.  ( There are six large blocks to this couch sized quilt. They are from the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt  project, which has many more blocks to make a full sized quilt. )

I knew that I had some colored quilting thread somewhere leftover after quilting the Crosses & Losses quilt. Naturally, I found it in the last place that I looked :)   I want to quilt the green and purple areas with colored thread.

The family went to a Meet Santa party at a local Elks lodge today. I am not sure who took the photo that my DIL posted on Facebook but I edited it a bit. I couldn’t move that Christmas tree to center it behind them, though, lol ! :)

I will be joining up with other Slow Sunday Stitchers tomorrow at Kathy’s Quilts as I make a bit of hand quilting progress on this latest block.
