However I'm still moving slowly along on my Civil War Sampler. I'll do one or two blocks a week, only quilting for 30 minutes or so at one time. I'm quilting these pretty sparsely and really, I think that's all they need anyway.
This is one of the setting blocks:
Simple quilting around the flag:
Remember, I already machine quilted in the ditch between the blocks, so that makes it much easier, and hugely faster!
Some ditch quilting above, and a little where it shows,
and a peek of the border
This one, above, needed a little more detail.
Here's Lincoln, also demanding a bit more detail.
Back to sparse. There's a tiny bit of detail in the center, if you have a nice big screen with good resolution, you might see it.
Other news: I just discovered I've been pinned! Check out The Quilt Cupboard for some very cool quilts, including a couple of mine!
Meanwhile, I should have a finished top to show in a few days, so stay tuned!
