    Fiance calls this one my Sunday Night quilt. It's the one I'm hand quilting, usually on Sunday nights when we watch all of our TV shows. I had a stack of 8.5 inch squares left from something or other, so this one was born lol.

    What a beautiful fall quilt, looks warm and cozy. I've only hand quilted one of my quilts so far. there's something very satisfying about hand quilting don't you think?

    It has the look of a very comforting old fashioned quilt...and I mean that in a good way. Even the name "Sunday Night Quilt" and you've outdone yourself by hand quilting with such perfect stitching. Great job.

    I use a sliver of bath soap to mark the meandering line as I go. You know those skinny thin pieces we usually toss when it's time for a new bar? they work great on dark fabrics.

    Babeegirl you have erased my question. I was going to ask if the quilting lines were marked. It seems so perfect to be just meandering like that. Those stitches are gorgeous !! Another question: Does the quilter just hold the quilt in her lap and hand quilt or does she use a hoop. I am so awkward with a hoop. :lol:

    I'm using a big wooden hoop I got at a thrift store. It's almost too big to handle. I think it's about 20 inches across.

    Sure, Judee! no rush though, I'm not starting that quilt until after Christmas.

    That's about the size hoop I have and I find it very awkward. I repeat, your quilting is amazing. :lol:
