Studio Series: Children's Art Quilt

The children's art quilt that I wrote about last year is taking shape. It's on the frame and I am slowly hand-quilting it. The last time that I hand-quilted a large quilt was six years ago and now I've noticed that my neck, back, and wrists aren't terribly happy when I sit at the frame for too long. One week I put in eighteen hours as I listened to an Ian Rankin audio book and that was a poor choice. My intention is to make two quilts and I'll have to learn how to machine-quilt the second one. Fortunately the gals at Needlework have a walking-foot and in the next few weeks I'll head out there to learn how to use it. Once the first quilt is finished I'll share photos with you.
