Slow going but getting there

The quilt on the frame didn't get much done to it during the weekend. The floors got washed, pulla got made (twice in two days) and a new recipe for dinner was tried out. I took the quilt off its stands for a day because Sunday was family dinner with everyone and Monday was Family Day in our neck of the woods. Here's what the quilt looks like now.

 This is the centre.

The left side.

A close-up of the centre. I mark as I go and decide on the spot how I want to quilt each of the coloured parts.

Here's the right side. Once this block is done, I can put in a couple of turns.

On the knitting front, I finished the hat I was working on and made another one.

I love the colours in this one.

The colours are equally nice in this one. I made this a tad bigger.

Two hats for two little girls made with washable wool.

I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network. Stop on by to see what other Canadians are up to this week.


  1. Thanks for showing your progress and process. It is hat wearing season! So cute! https://pegsplace.wordpress.com/

  2. The hats are adorable and will be cherished. Your quilting looks great. The quilt will be a showstopper.

  3. This quilt looks so good!!!! Pattern and colors are perfect :)

  4. I like the quilt you are working on a lot (and read back to find a picture of the whole thing). The colours are really vibrant. I can't knit to save my life, but love a good woolly hat.

  5. Your quilting is stunning! I know I could never be that precise. Lovely cosy hats too.

  6. The quilt is looking so good - I've been quilting and my finger is SO SORE, does that ever happen to you? The finger that I pull the needle through with. Of course I don't use a frame - just sit with it in my lap - so basically I'm doing a running stitch. Maybe that makes a difference, I don't know. Love the hats, so soft and pretty!!!

  7. The colours in that quilt are so bright and cheerful so that must make it even nicer to work on during these dull days of winter.

  8. Your quilting is coming along nicely.

  9. Lovely quilting Delores and I adore your little knitted hats. Talented lady!
