This garden one was hand quilted and I did a button hole stitch around everything. The spider web on it took over an hour! I quilted around the blue bird pattern in the top--and it needs at least two more--but I quit and hung it up. I figured it wouldn't get much wear and tear up there--so it could wait. Of course that was about 5 years ago, or longer... :roll: I have way too many ants in my pants to hand quilt.
My dad hybridizes Iris (he has an Iris farm)--so I drew an Iris and added one to both corners. Couldn't have a garden quilt without that with a dad who's passion is Iris!!
