    Well at last I am able to show you my latest effort. First time I have hand quilted, I did all 28 blocks in the centre by hand, took 3 weeks to do and a lot of punctures in my fingers. Then used my Brother Innovisīs Qulting designs on the outside.
    For the first time I can actually say I am pleased with this one and this is my 6th quilt andthis one is my first and only quilt just for ME.

    It's gorgeous!!!!

    Only 3 weeks?? It would take me years (ok, so I don't hand quilt, but that's a lot of work!!)

    Yes it was a lot of work, but I found I could do 2 or 3 sometimes in a day, donīt forget I am retired. the worst part was quilting in this Spanish heat it was in the 100īs.

    Thanks for your comments I do appreciate them.
