    So I decided to take the plunge and hand quilt my latest creation. I have hesitated to do so in the past because I've not had the space to leave a quilt frame up to do it, and I'm a big fat chicken and too impatient. But I wanted to try it at least once, so I decided to try it on this one. So far I have 1/3 of 1 block done...and I like the results so far I think. I looks horribly juvenile compared to some of the other quilting I've seen on here, but hey, so far so good for a beginner, right?

    Tell me what you think...

    I'm so glad that you're doing it! I hand quilt on my minis and love the quietness of it.

    After two hours of bending over the frame my neck is killing me. I've got 1/3 of one block done, and I think I'll keep going. Not only is it not half bad looking, I really enjoy the texture of the quilt with the stitching in it...

    Definitely going to post when it's all done.

    Hand quilting and applique are great on road trips, if you have a driver
