2017-7 Baby Blocks

I assembled this top during the summer of 2016 at the cottage and then began hand quilting it during a vacation in Cuba.  It gave me a wonderful opportunity to chat with curious people.  I was able to explain the concept of quilting to a young boy from England who stopped to inquire, “What are you knitting?” I finished the quilting during the winter, picking it up at random.

My hand quilting group all weighed in on how I ought to quilt it.  I sure appreciate the experience of those wonderful hand quilters.  My preferred method of quilting is by machine, so as a relatively new hand quilter, I certainly appreciate their advice.

I entered it in some fall fairs in the hand quilted baby quilt category and won a few prizes.  Maybe I am improving on my hand quilting!
