One Hour – Day One September 3, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
I’ve been working on my Double Wedding Ring ‘forever’. Somewhere there’s a post with the exact day, but suffice it to say I started this quilt in Sept/Oct 1989 – 24 years ago.
The hand quilting began sometime after January 5th, 2010, as that’s the date I show as completing the top. Progress has been sporadic. I am so close to finishing the quilting — if I would just sit still and work on it.
So, I’m going to take up Bonnie’s challenge of One Hour of Simply Needle & Thread.
This is where I quilt. I’m looking forward to moving the floor lamp out of the living room when this quilt is done. I suspect my husband is looking forward to getting the laundry basket out of the living room.
I wish I had a cute way to show the time I spent, but I haven’t figured it out yet. I watched the last half of an episode of Leverage and then most of some wedding dress show which ran an hour.
When I started the center of this ring needed finishing.
An hour later, the center was complete and I moved the hoop to do the arc to the left.
In my side bar I have an EQ drawing showing my progress. I’ll try to update it everyday I quilt.
Won’t you join Bonnie and others on their quest for one hour of hand work a day? You can see everyone’s progress HERE.
