Hammock quilt update!

So I started hand quilting triple diagonal lines on this quilt September 10.  Relived September 11 as I stitched and have watched chapters of my life change and close and open since I started.

I am now one half done with the diagonal lines and decided I needed to see her in all her glory right now… to ponder my next steps.

with a close up of the diagonal stitching I have put in…

And a pic of the back…

I loved making the chevron for the back and piecing it in but I am not enjoying hand quilting over it and will think twice before using a pieced back like this in the future… one seam or two for a traditional pieced back is fine.. but this pieced back has much more bulk to quilt over by hand 🙂

I plan to use YLI varigated 40 wt quilting thread for the white spots… add some whimsy and fun to this quilt front and back 🙂  What are your thoughts???

Hope you do something productive this weekend!  I will if you call quilting productive! lol
