    I just finished this quilt after three long months of hand quilting. The Pattern is God's Eye from the Constantine site. It went together easy enough, but I didn't like the way the background fabric looked after it was together so I thought, I'll just quilt lines across it and I did 1/4 lines. Midway, I realized I had put a couple pieces in wrong so I had to take them out in the middle of the quilt and replace it. Not fun. It turned out OK, not my favorite color choice but it was a request from the person I made it for. I should have done some feathers or something because the lines were so boring to do. But it is done!!! Amen!

    Hand quilting always impresses me. Thanks for the close-up.
    I can see why the lines would be boring, but you hung in there and created a real treasure.

    Thanks for giving me a laugh! We've all been nutso at one point or another in our lives!! The main thing your quilt taught you was perseverence and it paid off!! It's very impressive and that's better than anything whether nutso or not!!

    wow, handquilting. People who handquilt are awesome like nurses. I could never do it, but i sure am glad someone does. It is simply amazing to me that someone has that patience. My husband always gets as close as he can at quilt shows and just stares at the handquilted ones. Funny big burly guy dressed in camo at a quilt show. :)
    You should get a medal! Looks great.
