The First Hand Quilt Along of Autumn

This is the first Hand Quilt Along post of Autumn, but the second one of September. I marked the second short end of the inner border earlier this week and have been quilting it when visiting my mom. 

I finished quilting the braid yesterday and started the flower. I still have to finish quilting the corner flower, but I think I will stencil the other long border today so that it is ready to start quilting tomorrow.
Soon I will have to decide on the stencil for the outer red and white checked border. 

The HQAL is an opportunity for hand quilters to share and motivate each other. The talented quilters below post every three weeks to show our progress and encourage one another. Stop by their sites to see what they are working on. If you have a hand project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  10. Hi Cathie, I love how that braid turned out and the crossed lines too. Wonderful quilting!

  11. Hi Cathie: This is going to be beautiful, I have never seen anyone quilt like this, I always thought it had to be on a quilt frame big quilt frame.
