Monday Making

After getting my snowball quilt basted....finally.....

...I began some hand quilting this week.

Getting all those ugly basting stitches in
takes time...
but it is SO worth it!

I am using Perle cotton....
And hoping to add another color or two as I go.
One snowball at a time!

I posted about basting and quilting this quilt on my you tube channel.

What are YOU making this week??


  1. Very fun and bright quilt. Enjoy your slow stitching time.

  2. I like the colors in your quilt. But hand quilting in the summer? EH. It's been in the 90s here for two plus weeks. I'm not getting under a quilt. Although I have one that I really want to finish one of these days....

  3. Your hand quilting looks beautiful.

  4. One of my fave quilts of yours. The hand quilting is gonna make this amazing!:)

  5. I really like the perle cotton with the snowball blocks.

  6. It looks great! How big are those snowball blocks?

  7. I love your snowball quilt, Beth! I'm curious about your basting method, though. When I hand quilted (only once!) I was taught to baste from the center out in straight lines, so it looked kind of like a big asterisk when the basting was done. It looks like you baste kind of like a zig zag. Can you explain how and why you do it that way?

    1. There are probably a few ways to baste a quilt. I was taught to sort of zig zag around beginning in the center. They aren't pretty stitches...but they do the job. :)

  8. Love your quilt, and your new profile pic!

  9. Love your new photo with the quilt backdrop!

  10. Beautiful quilt! Good for you! I love your attitude!
