Those darn little HST on the corners. Course if I'd cut them bigger would have been fine but I was limited to the amount of fabric I had. Time for shower and lunch (or maybe the vice versa as it is 1:30pm)

  4. Hand quilting

    A few weeks ago I visited a Amish lady, who had a couple of quilts for sale. One was a storm at sea, finished, and the second one was a fan quilt she had on the frame. Now every thing I have been taught and learned has been that you start quilting in the middle and work out. Correct?
