Liberated Log Cabin - more progress

I've started hand quilting my liberated log cabin...

I'm using Perle cotton no.8 threads.

They are so lovely to quilt with.

I'm using blues and purples in the dark sections and red, pink, orange and yellow in the light sections.

The back is looking ok.  The stitches aren't great, but I just love the look of the stitches on the solids.

The dissecting lines are where I have quilted in the ditch, also with Perle cotton by hand.

It's going to take a while to quilt this project, even though it's only about one metre square because the rows of quilting are only one inch apart and I plan to create a cross-hatch pattern.  Eek!

PS - thanks to those readers who advised me on how to create straight lines of quilting.  I am using one inch wide masking tape and it's working really well. :-)
