Quilt news

I don't know if it is visible, but I wanted to show you the damage to my fingers from quilting on this antique quilt.

My skin go so sore, that I tried wrapping the fingers with scotch tape when sewing!

The below area is only partially quilted, and is difficult shapes for quilting, but will soon be done!

Since the "quilting Bee" held at Pancho Villa State Park, I've been able to get several of these areas done.
All the basting that the ladies helped me with made all the difference!

Thanks, everyone!


  1. Awesome job you are doing!...perhaps a thimble...i found a leather one and it is wonderful!

  2. Couldn't you wear a thimble? I can't when sewing as find it a nuisance. You might be better putting duct tape round your fingertips, as it's stronger.

    Quilt is looking lovely.

    Hope you have a lovely day. Sue, Polly & Honey

  3. Ouch, that looks very sore. Glad you have some helpers to make it a bit easier.

  4. Ouch! I hope you find something that works to keep your fingers safer. The quilt is absolutely beautiful, though!

  5. It is looking awesome but your fingers look so sore. Thanks for the update.
