    I am sorry for using all the capital lettering. I am new to this. I am disabled with one hand so I always type with the capital key on to make it easier. Thank you for your info.

    Welcome from Georgia.

    Your stitches will get smaller and more even with practice.

    Welcome to the board!
    I love to hand quilt and will tell you that it takes some time to "master" it (not that I have really haha).
    It's better to aim for even stitches, rather than tiny ones.
    Make sure you have a small enough needle that you can use easily. For me it's a size 10.
    Good luck! :)

    I was going to say the same thing - check your size of needle. The shorter the easier also. I learned something and I'll be darned if I can remember to determine the size you need for a quilting needle - something about the tip of the index finger (mine is crooked) to the first joint and that should be the size of your needle. If I am wrong, someone please correct me because this is something I would really like to know. It is possible that I don't enjoy the hand quilting as much because I am using the wrong size needle.

    The dog woke me up this morning, crying. Twice during the night. I just covered her up with the blanket and she is sleeping like a baby! That's Minnesota weather for you. Even the dogs don't like the weather!!!!!!! Have a happy day! Edie

    welcome from se TX -- practice (and a quilt sandwich which isn't too thick) will make for smaller stitches -- take your time as small stitches will come

    I found a new dog in NC.and was worried that she would not like the weather here but,she is loving M.N too.She had me out for quite a long walk yesterday. Thank you also for the info.Wrong or right I like it. If the needle is long I only bend it because I fight to much with it.

    Welcome! I'm from the Twin Cities. The best part about living in MN is being snowed in and having a full day to quilt!

    You are so right!!!They make fun of me for moving north but ,they don't know all of my tricks. I enjoy the snow not the rain. I had that for to long.I am hoping to ride to Mankato today for a long shopping day. I try to get as much done in the one trip that I can endure.
