Today I am starting to hand quilt my oldest UFO. This old quilt was pieced in 1996 so it will soon be 20 years old! You can read more about this quilt here.
It's time to start the quilting.
This quilt holds so many memories for me. I always had in mind to hand quilt this project, but somehow it never got to the top of the project pile.

I finally bought a package of my favourite hand quilting batting and a new box of pins. It's a queen size quilt, so I needed to get more pins since they will be committed to this project for a long time.
The pin basting was finished this week and it was a tough workout for my hands, with only one episode of bleeding. The hand quilting will be a breeze compared to the pinning process.
And so the hand quilting journey begins again, although I don't know yet what the quilting design is going to be. Stay tuned :)
