    I love hand quilting, the most relaxing thing there is to do.
    I feel at peace when I am sitting at my frame quilting.
    I think I only piece the tops so I can have the pleasure of quilting them! :lol: :lol:

    You may have to take your quilt and hoop and sit in the backseat. :mrgreen:

    I've never tried this, but l have heard about it and seen it on television.
    Is it hard to learn to use?
    When I quilt a lot, I get callouses on 2 fingers on my left hand, always punching them
    I have tried other things, but just seem to have to feel the needle. I cant control the stitches.

    Hand quilting is very relaxing, and I usually do it in a group, so it is also fellowship! I do machine piece most of my quilts, but occassionally work on Cathedral Windows or Grandmothers Flower Garden or make Yo-Yos by hand. :lol:
