I started this quilt for my husband a few weeks ago when I cut his old jacket into pieces. Now I'm continuing this piece in a kind of korak method, but I quilt it, as can be seen in the picture. 13 strips like these two will make the complete quilt of about 60x48". I guess it will be extra fun to arrange the strips and make them match before I sew them. This piece works a lot faster than the bird quilt, as the quilting is in larger stitches, too. It would be great if I could finish it for Xmas. I use a wooden board in order to protect the table from the pins.
The bird quilt is almost finished. You can still see the basting which of course will be removed. I'll do some very large but hidden quilting stitches on the reverse. This is what I do during watching TV in the evenings.
This is my first properly done, bed size quilt.
I sewed two in the seventies, but as I did not know that they had to be quilted, they fell apart after some use, and I discarded them.
