Hand Quilt Along: Nothing To See Here . . . 


Move along, folks. Nothing to see here. Not one new stitch.


You’ll find progress by other quilters, listed below!

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  1. Okay, I always appreciate a good chuckle so thank you. I’d be in the same boat. I have a quilting project that hopefully isn’t dusty yet and a DIY project that is still sitting in the original pieces. Gardening beckons me, and I answer. 🙂

    • Yes, gardening! And other tasks that have to be done in good weather. It rained hard yesterday and it was almost a relief! A day inside . . . yay!

  2. Lol! It’s so easy to publish posts only when we have something marvellous and new to talk about. I like seeing that you are human Kerry. 🙂

  3. How in the world did you get that traffic shot? I have no gardening to report this week (so much rain!!) but I do have some sewing I’m thinking of getting to.

    • Oh, that’s a stock shot from morguefile.com–cheating, I guess! We’ve had very little rain, except yesterday–I kind of liked the rain. It meant I could stay inside and work on weaving!

  4. Well, you are prepped and ready, so that is still a step forward, Kerry. I say any progress is still good and one step closer to the finish, and since there is no deadline it’s perfect! (And I wouldn’t have you trade your day weaving for hand quilting for anything!)

    • You’re right–in the time time I did have available, I had to make choices and I have been choosing weaving. I’m doing weaving demo in a museum in a couple weeks and need to be prepared for that, plus all the summer other demands of garden and home.

  5. You make me laugh. That’s how I feel too. I keep trudging along but some days it seems as if I’m going backward instead of forward. You’ll get there, enjoy the slower pace.

    • That’s exactly it–quilting just doesn’t seem to be a summertime activity. But when things quiet down, I’ll haul my quilting hoop outside under a shady tree and try to make some progress!

  6. There goes life interfering with our crafting/blogging plans again 🙂 I just hope you are lounging about in your gorgeous Adirondack chairs admiring the movement of the lake waters instead of hand quilting!

    • Well, I do have some time each day for the languid life you envision! But, goodness, we’re busy with so many things–some fun, some necessary, all time consuming. It’s all good . . .

    • A lot of what I’m doing does have to do with family obligations, that’s true. And when I have free time, I’m simply not choosing quilting. But I’ll get back to it!

  7. You made me laugh out loud! Love the picture.
    Looks like no hand quilting here until Fall. My hand stitching at the moment is hexies and 6 pointed star patterns for my upcoming quilt workshops this Summer! I’m so pleased that they have people in them and now on to social media and see if I can get more sign ups.
    Too much going on early in May and then buckets of rain the last half of the month have made me get way behind in gardening. The weeds are prolific and I am making slow progress getting the mulch down. The weather is hot/Summer now but thank heavens for the pool…
    Sorry to hear that you have less time for you – is it your Mom? Hope the weather is good – cool drinks in the lawn chairs by the lake?

    • That’s great news about your workshops! I’d love to take a workshop in hexies . . .

      A lot of my time has been taken up trying to get my mom’s little summer place ready to sell, yes. We are going to have an epic garage sale pretty soon! But I’m also doing what everyone is doing this time of year–fighting the weeds, doing home improvement stuff that depends on good weather, etc. And weaving . . .

  8. After intending to take up a long-neglected quilting project this past spring, I finally gave up and put it aside until fall. Fortunately, it doesn’t need regular feeding or watering. What kind of weaving demonstration are you giving?

    • Just a very basic demo. It’s a small house museum and they’re doing an open house during a larger “open museum” day. They have a HUGE, old barn loom, inoperable because the ratchet and pawl mechanism on the cloth beam is made of wood and broken, but they want people to see what it could do, if it worked. So, I’m taking a small 4-shaft and weaving . . . towels! And you made the right decision to postpone your quilting until it’s proper quilting weather!
