I have been working on this Patience Square quilt for a few weeks. This is the second hand-pieced quilt i've done.  I made it for my teen-age daughter.  There is significance in the name! LOL

I've been hand sewing the binding every night while I read craftster posts. You folks are truly inspirational!

 

Here is the back, I love seeing the pattern on the back of a quilt. 



I'm revving up that sewing machine after this - no more hand-piecing for a long, long time.  Woo Hooo!!!

Can you please share your secret with me? How do you manage to sew and read at the same time?
If I could master that I could do a lot more sewing! I can only sew and watch TV...but I'll give it a try.
Your quilt looks lovely, thanks for showing the back too.

I can only do this for hand sewing and was finishing the binding last night.  My "trick" would be to not scroll down the page until I sew 3 or 4 inches. I have to set a limit, otherwise, I would NEVER get done   When I was quilting this I used a 18 inch hoop instead of a large frame so its more portable.   Also, I have the computer screen resolution set to 1600 x 1200 pixals so the content of window is small and there is more content on it.  And just page down every couple of minutes. 

Thank you, I don't know if I was more excited that I finally got this one done or that I could start on something new on machine.  I have a few other projects line up to get done by christmas, inculding another quilt.
