I am in a weekly group to hand piece and quilt. Am about to jump,fall or stumble into another group that quilts quilts by hand for charities, etc. You will love hand quilting for many reasons. (I also machine piece and quilt too) there is an amazing book by Jenny Beyer that our library carries. It is such an excellent book and have checked it out a couple of times. She simplifies hand quilting and lets you know that there are no set 'rules'..just guidelines to follow. We each have our own style and techniques too. My goal is at least 6-8 stitches per inch and your needle is your amazing tool. The right size can make an amazing difference in your sewing too. Here' the book on Jenny's site at:

You will love it too!! Skeat
