    I am starting on what I am calling a cookie cutter quilt :lol: It is applique that I sewed down by machine but am hand quilting it and doing it in the style of a quilt as you go - 30s fabric on a muslin background - hope this works out the way I picture it in my mind :roll: LOL

    This is the place where I sit for hours to work on my quilts! I like to watch/hear the TV or listen to music while I quilt. It's one of my favourite places in our little house...

    I really love doing hand quilting, its relaxing (even when I make mistakes) :-D ..Most of the time, I quilt while watching tv with my family..Just started quilting around the end of Nov so a newbie here but I have a feeling that quilting is something that I am going to love and enjoy for a long long time..

    I too like to handquilt while listening to the radio or TV. I love any kind of handwork, esp. applique although I don't do it too often.

    I usually set in the family room with my DH while he's watching tv. I find it very relaxing when I'm hand quilting. I'm currently working on a quilt for my older brother and hope to have it done by his b-day in Nov. It's a surprise for him so I'm not on a timeline to get it done(I don't like to quilt under pressure).
