UFO - Western Quilt

I am working on hand quilting my Western quilt. It is proving to be a slow process. I made a template of an arrow and am adding them on each side of my blocks and I am also quilting cattle brands on the white squares. I have to apologize for the quality of my photos today but for some reason this quilt does not photograph well. Everyone who has seen photos of this quilt are amazed at how different it looks in person but I am not sure how to correct things.
I think by the end of all this I should be better at hand quilting but I guess this is a good place to start....
Now this is what I got up to this morning. When I finished working on my quilt last night I took the hoop off it and folded it and put it in the chair. My daughter's cat Juno (who is visiting until she can get into a place that allows kitties) was sleeping on the quilt. I did not have the heart to make her get off it. I am glad she is enjoying it for now..

I hope all of you are having a wonderful week.


  1. I admire your calm nature, I would have a siezure if I found a cat sleeping on my work!!

  2. Hi Connie! I've loved this quilt the first time I saw it and it just gets better! Your hand quilting is wonderful and the arrows are such a fun idea:) Hope you're enjoying the holiday season!!
