    So, now we just have to decide how to quilt it, which stencils to use. I have laid out some of the choices that i have. Also laid out all the things i will need while hand quilting. Different size needles, some mornings I will have to start with an 8 and then move to a smaller needle 10 or 12 as I go along. Also a needle puller for the seams, and my markers I use a fons and porter pencil, dark lead for the white and white lead for the dark blue. And the green tape is if i want to do some cross hatching, I will mark my lines with that.
    I don't know it this is clear, but hope you enjoy seeing inside what a hand quilter does to get ready.
    Thanks for looking into my world!

    Wowzers Ninnie! That is brilliant! I want one!!!!! :D :D :D

    Only problem I can see is what happens if a large, furry object ie Barney Cat jumps up on there? I just KNOW he'd think it's a new bed just for him! :shock: :mrgreen:

    I can really appreciate all the work that goes into hand quilting, but I don't have the patience for it. :lol:

    Ninnie, you are a fantastic teacher! You so obviously know what you are doing...and you make it look so easy that I want to try! That pattern was one of my DGM's favorites and one I have on my "to do" lists...yours is beautiful!
    Thanks so much for sharing with all of us!

    Ninnie,
    I just wanted to say that you have motivated me to go up to the attic ( actually have my daughter climb through the scuttle hole to the attic) and get a quilt frame down that my friend gave me a long time ago. Have never set it up. I will have a queen size quilt to do and that will make it so much easier than the hoop. Hope it works and has all it's pieces. I know it is not nearly as nice as yours. Thanks....
