AMH Honeycomb Quilt {Progress}

I previously mentioned regarding this quilt that I was thinking to hand quilt this one... 
Some of you might think that it would take forever...Maybe not.:)

I am doing straight lines like this.
I found this on Flickr Pinterest by ruthdesigns. I love the simplicity of it.



First thing first, making the quilt sandwich...


After looking at different threads, I decided to go with a Valdani Pearl Cotton no.8
Variegated in Black Night. Bought it from Three Sheep Studio on Etsy...



I am doing this on my kitchen table (using a cutting mat to protect my table). That's what works best for me considering it is a big quilt. I just slide the quilt on the table as I go. 
I don't use a hoop, It's easier on my arms this way. I started a few days ago and I already have third of the quilt done...I couldn't be more pleased.:)

This gives a good idea of the final look.

Back to work now...:)

  1. Perfect! Did you use any pins or basting spray?

  2. It looks fantastic so far. Do you think the pearl cotton is much better than embroidery thread? I am contemplating doing a hand quilting project with lots of different colors, and the price difference is significant.

  6. Gorgeous. I love the idea of quilting at the table. On the rare occasion I hand quilt I don't use a hoop either so having the quilt flat on the table would make life so much easier xxx

  13. Beautiful! The quilt and the quilting. I'm working on two hexie quilts and I've been thinking about the quilting. I don't know yet how I will quilt them but the quilting design you use on your quilt appeals to me a lot. I find it simple but gorgeous. And the color you chose for your thread makes the lines standing out beautifully, as well as your handwork!
    I pinned the last picture.

  21. Love the snowball. I had the same thoughts on curves, it took me 6 months to finish my curved quilt and loved it in the end. Good thing is it made me braver the next time. Be brave!

  22. I like your quilting technique and your finished results. Using a cutting mat underneath is a brilliant idea.
