Triangle Quilt

Cara’s post on summer goals last week got me thinking about some goals I might have for the summer. I don’t have a full list like Cara does, but I did think of a few things that I’d like to get done.

One of the things I’d like to do is make a quilt and hand-quilt it. At my job, I make quilt tops all day long, but I don’t do the actual quilting. I’ve made two tshirt quilts at home, but I used my machine to quilt them both. I love the look of hand-quilted quilts. They take time and patience and dedication. I’m generally not good at discipline or following through on projects, so I’d like to challenge myself to actually hand-quilt a (small) quilt this summer.

I used my memorial day to make a quilt top, so now I’m ready to start quilting!
