    My first quilt with inspectors

    This is my first quilt and my first picture post. I just call it my garden quilt. About a year ago,I got the idea that I wanted to make at least one quilt before I die, since I've tried every other craft over the years. I also wanted to do it all by hand. This is the result. It took about 8 months from start to finish.Now, I'm a hardcore quilt addict. I have about 6 more in progress, mostly hand sewing, a couple partly machine stitched.
    I know I must be hardcore because I can't get enough stash. Especially the '30's prints.
    Love looking at everyone's pictures on here.
    Those are 2 of the inspectors. Patches, the tuxedo cat, and Sam, our spoiled, biggest fur baby.
    I posted a pic of him in the chit chat section.

    Oh so pretty! Love the colors and the border -- and boy oh boy that took a lot of patience with all that hand sewing.

    Beautiful quilt. Love your color choices. My first six quilts were all done by hand. They are still holding up well and their is a special place in my heart knowing that each and every stitch was done by hand. Love the inspectors too.

    Your quilt is so beautiful! And I am awestruck by doing it by hand...I'd never have the patience. Sam and Patches are gorgeous too and Sam's pics elsewhere were precious.

    Love your quilt and inspectors. I think I would like your stash as my favorite fabrics are 20's and 30's! I plan to make a Grandmother's Garden by hand, but have not started it yet. I like how you set them in blocks and used sashing and cornerstones. That's a great idea.
