    Welcolme! Sounds like you are hand quilting..1/16" sounds good to me! After 2 years, my hand quilting looks like basting for the first foot or so...I do love hand quilting though...I think as long as it's constant in size, it's fine.

    You've got it just right Sandy don't change a thing. The longer you hand quilt the smaller your stitches will become and the number size of your Betweens will go up in numbers.

    So glad to have you back to the quilting world and welcome from one hand quilter to another from AZ. :-D :-D :-D

    Sandy: I don't know how to answer your question, but I am curious. My name is Roxie Cowan and I live in Brenham, Texas, near Houston. Could we be related?

    He said no relations. Only Cowan family members left are in Arkansas. His aunt used to live in Brenham years ago but they all moved back home in Arkansas. Thats where my hubby is originally from.
