Finishing Post

Thimbleberry Squares

I find hand quilting very enjoyable and relaxing but make too many tops to have time to quilt them all, quilting by chequebook is expensive and I find machine quilting stressful and tend to put it off but I have gritted my teeth lately and got past quilters' block.
I did hand quilt the Thimbleberry squares as my husband found it an acceptable replacement for the 20 year old lap quilt currently in use but worn out; another one (Poppies) is going to a friend so that merits longarming, another (Sisters Log Jam, photo later)  has been machine  quilted and now I'm sewing down the binding (a task I  like) and as I was machine quilting Hawaiian Snails Trail in the ditch I took control by using my hand Singer for the job. And the latest Linus quilt I machined the binding as well as the top (photo later).

First Linus Quilt of this year now handed over.
This is the top as I forgot to take a photo of the finished piece.
