Amish quilt update-July 8
This afternoon, I sat and worked the rest of row two and row three. That took an hour. Then, I finished a book that I had started. After we ate supper, I took my basket and went out to the little backyard and sat at the table and sewed for about an hour. Then a thunderstorm rolled around us and I had to come inside. I finished the row that I was working on inside. Now, I have six rows finished. Let's see, 17 squares to a row makes that 102 squares finished. But, I made a mistake the other day. There will be only 289 instead of 320. I cut too many purple ones. So, I can add 3 hours for today so that makes 7 and 1/2 hours to date. Coming along nicely I think. I only made one mistake so far. I got the row doubled under and sewed a block in with the seam that I was working on. Had to take that one apart. Oops! Dooley

Dooley, do you hand sew the pieces together? Brave woman if you do. I have done hand piecing on miniature pieces and for paperpiecing but give me a sewing machine every time for regular piecing.
I am sewing them by hand. I thought about using the machine but my sewing corner is hot and I can set outside in the evening and sew unless those stray thunderstorms come by. We didn't get anything but thunder and wind the last three days. Dooley
It sounds as though you're really getting on with the quilt Dooley. I find hand sewing can be very relaxing at times instead of using a sewing machine. I can hardly wait to se the quilt finished!!
I don't have a machine anymore but I do some quilting by hand. Haven't done any for awhile. Maybe while I'm waiting for my knee to heal I can get some doll quilts done for the little girls. Wannabe
