    Okay - I've worked up the courage to post a picture of quilt I recently finished. This was machine pieced and hand quilted. One of the things I learned on this quilt is that it's not good for the eyes to focus on color opposites like bright pink / bright green for long periods of time. When I looked away from the hand quilting, I'd see squares! (The colors in person are brighter than in the pic! By the way, that's my oldest son holding the quilt. LOL

    I call it Springtime - cause that was when it started.

    I'm so glad you posted, because that is one fantastic Springtime quilt! That's exactly what is conjured up in my mind when I see it. It's so pretty!!! You must've enjoyed making it. Are you keeping it for yourself, or is it a gift?

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. I've learned so much from all the quilters on this board!

    It seems like it took me forever. I was afraid I'd wear out the quilt dragging it around to hand quilt. This was the first big quilt I made, so it's staying in my house. When I get better at quilting, my family will start to get gifts.

    Renee, it's beautiful! I love the colors and it just screams spring and sunshine and flowers coming up! My 4 year old would absolutely fall in love with it! I just love hand quilting! It is so relaxing and rewarding to see it finished! Good job and please share more!
