    I started hand quilting this whole cloth quilt on Nov. 22, 2010. Yesterday I reached the middle of the center medallion, so that means I am HALF-WAY done! :)

    The quilt top was purchased pre-printed, but I added extra pencil markings to it to make it bigger on the sides and added more quilting lines in the main body of it. Once washed, the blue lines will disappear.

    YaY! Be sure and post when it is finished. I have done some pillow tops in this method. Really helps me to see where I can improve my stitch. I applaud anyone willing to tackle a large quilt. :):)
