More about the hand-stitching

I usually have at least one project in progress, set up by the comfortable couch in our living room.  Right now, I'm working on the hand-quilting that I'm adding to the machine stitching on the shot cotton quilt.  A sign of how pleasurable this work is:  I have found myself thinking that I don't want to finish the quilt quickly, so that I continue to have the stitching to do.  I love choosing each new color as I move from square to square.

 And I love seeing how the thread looks on the two different rectangles in the square.  Simple pleasures.

At this point, I'm about half-way done with the hand-quilting.
