Norah Quilt

 






I knew it had been a while since I'd written a blog post, but can't believe it was May?!  While my blogging came to a complete standstill in summer, my quilting has resumed, which means I have quite a few more quilts to show you!  

This top was pieced at least a year ago, but since it was one of those that I decided to hand quilt, it took me a long time to finish!  

It's the Norah quilt, which has a basic tutorial at this link.  Its a pretty simple quilt, which you could make as big as you wanted!  I really enjoyed using a bunch of bright and happy fabrics in this one, and then used a Liberty voile on the back.  The black hand quilting gives it a nice edge and keeps it from being too sweet!

Mine ended up being about 48" square.  Kind of an inbetween size, but it was a nice size to hand quilt because it was easy to haul around with me and have sitting on my lap.  (Yes, I baste these quilts the same as one I would machine piece and then just hand quilt with out a hoop.  You just have to be careful that you don't pull your stitching to tight as it could tend to pucker up too much if you do.)  I love hand quilting this way because it's so easy!)

  7. Love the fabrics you used, especially the one with the mice! So cute. I too like to hand quilt without a hoop, I just can't seem to get the hang of using a hoop. Jan in MA

  14. I was just looking for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.
