Carpenters Wheel

After a month of hand quilting, I've finished quilting my Carpenters Wheel,  made with the help of Linda Franz'  Inklingo Free Shape Collection.  I finished the top a number of years back when I first caught the Inklingo bug. It's my first Inklingo project and made entirely from my fabric stash.

Carpenter's Wheel Hand Pieced and Hand Quilted
It's a nice lap size and will come in handy during Ocala Winters.  Surprisingly temperatures actually got in the 20's F in Ocala last Winter.

I love hand piecing and Inklingo has made it so enjoyable that I tend to move from project to project and hand piece tops and don't get to quilting them.  This time I made a promise to myself to take on nothing but the hand quilting of this top until done.  I've made promises like this before.  This time I kept it.


My two boys always hang out with me - watching me quilt.    


They're actually bored.  Don't they look bored.

  2. Hello Sandy. Your quilt looks marvellous. I was particularly intersetd to know you used Inklingo. I know nothing about it, but I am going to look into it, as it keeps cropping up in the blogs I enjoy.
    Like you, I love to hand piece, hand quilt, embroider and applique.
    I particularly enjoyed seeing your 2 sweet dogs. I lost my old dog at Easter, she used to sleep in my sewing room while I sewed.
    I'm going to have a look round now at some of your other projects and follow the links you gave, best wishes Kath

    1. Hi Kath. Thank you for your comments. We are half a world distant but have much in common. If you do look at Inklingo, I think you'll enjoy hand piecing even more with the use of it.
      I'm so sorry for your loss Kath. I took a trip over to your blog. Your pups were adorable. You must miss them terribly.

      Best wishes to you too and I'll look for you on Facebook.
