At this Rate....

 If I can get one more block quilted this winter that will make a total of 6.  If that rate stays true I can get the center 25 blocks quilted in 3 years.

Click on photos to enlarge.
 I haven't quite determined how long the border will take!
One day of sunshine and this is what I get! Oh yes, spring is on the way.

  3. That is a lot of quilting but it is a beautiful quilt and well worth the effort you have put into it. I need to start quilting my tops, that is the hardest when you have hand and free motion to do, a long arm would be nice;)

  4. Keep on keeping on....you'll get there. Such a beautiful quilt is well worth the time and effort. Perhaps you will quilt a little in the Spring and in the Fall and increase the year's total.

  5. Your quilt is so beautiful. I wish spring was here...yesterday it was 52 degrees out and today we are in the middle of a snow storm. We are expecting up to 10" of snow. Hugs

  6. It's so beautiful / glad that you showed your progress : )

    Spring was here yesterday / it's gone today, lol.. However, the bird song is different in the early mornings so most of the spring and summer birds have returned :)

  10. Your quilt looks glorious in the springtime sunshine! The texture and feel of the handquilting make it so worth it. What pretty little crocuses :0)

  11. You will get there! It is a fabulous quilt. I am sure once done you will miss working on it. I've had separation anxiety over a few of mine. Quilt on something for over a years time and it is part of you and your routine.

  14. Don't despair about how long it takes. Every stitch you take, you're closer to a finish. The first half always takes the longest, it seems. It's looking beautiful and will be well worth the time you put in it.

  17. What a beautiful quilt! Your quilting is great. People who don't sew or quilt don't understand why handmade quilts cost so much. You can't even charge minimum wage because the price would be in the thousands! It is a joy to look at something so beautiful. Keep on bloggin'

  23. Lori, your quilt is looking great. I'll bet you are anxious to get it done. As for Spring....how nice it has come your way. We got 10" of snow last night and today. I don't think it will ever come to MI.
