All I Have To Do

I chose to hand quilt this one.  The shower is on Saturday.  I figure I have until Friday morning.  I'll just keep sewing along. 

 I decided to use all different colors of a meandering running stitch and just go and go until I run out of time.  Then Friday I'll edge it and Saturday it will be finished.  

All I have to do, besides work on this quilt, is feed and raise my children and keep the chickens alive.

Your quilt looks like it is coming along nicely. Do you hand quilt with a hoop, or a frame, or nothing at all?

Hi. Thanks! Here's a long winded answer for you: I use nothing at all. I would be tempted by a big old frame to keep the quilt off of my lap in the summer time heat but that's the only reason and they're crazy expensive so nothing it is. I tried a hoop early on in my hand quilting adventures but it was more of a pain than it was worth. Can you imagine fitting a thick quilt into an embroidery hoop? And then doing it over and over again as you move along to embroider elsewhere? No thanks. :)
