    my back surgery recovery quilt

    i had some pretty intense back surgery the end of march of this year. i've only been sewing a little over a year and i really liked that tutorial from #1piecemaker on her double bit axe quilt. she's been trying to get me to hand sew forever now and ive just laughed at her! well...there i was.....fresh out of the hospital, on my side with pillows and ice, head on a pillow, sewing these little pieces together because of my incessant desire to touch fabric! 374 pieces later, bought a hoop online, its all quilted and i absolutely LOVE IT! now im planning my next hand sewn/quilted one! thanks so much for looking and thanks a million to #1 for her fantastic tute and her friendship. ps~this only took me about 8-9 weeks start to finish! thanks for looking!

    You did a beautiful job, but I just can't imagine, like you, doing something so amazing all by hand, but then, we play with the cards we're dealt and make the best of it. As I can see by your photo you did just that! I hope by now you're healing and able to get around a little better.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Hope you are feeling better. Lovely quilt. Can't imagine doing something like that by hand and being sick on top of it. I bow down to you. BrendaK
