Quilting progress ...

Quilting is progressing apace on my Caswell quilt. Some days all I can think of is quilting, and other days it's really hard to face it ... but I keep plugging away, knowing that each stitch is another one closer to the finished quilt.

This is block 16 of the 25 that I've used in this quilt. I finished it this morning after a big effort last night. My goal was to get it done before I went to bed, but it was just getting too late and my eyes were feeling tired ... so I succumbed to sleep.

This evening I'm quilting the adjacent triangles and sashing strips, and I hope to get busy on the next block tomorrow after tennis.

I'm still debating over what project I'm going to work on next. Each time I go to quilt group or to work I'm tempted by every single thing that my friends are working on, and I'm dying to do some piecing again. I have a few months to think about it, and I can't wait! Chatter soon :-)

Your stitches are so perfect. I find myself just staring at your fabric choices, they are amazing. The green basket weave fabric is perfect, reminds me of a nest. You will be finished in no time. What is the design called in the corners of your block? Can't wait to see more. Thank you for sharing.

Your quilting is beautiful! As is your applique. Like Janet, I also love your fabrics.

If so admire your ability to stick with one project to the very end. I am all over the place but still produce... Loving every thing about this quilt!

Your quilting is so beautiful. I can certainly relate to the "need for sleep overpowers the need to finish". Thanks for sharing.

Your stitches are so nice and small and even. Each stitch does get you closer to being done, but enjoy the. Journey as you go.

Your hand quilting is wonderful! I know what you mean about wanting to do it all--we need more hours in the day so we can have more fun quilting!

I like how you did cross hatch within a circle within a square block. I want to remember that. Very pretty.
