    Thank you!
    I've done all the quilts on my website and I also did some more. But some of them are sold or I gave them away as presents and I think there are 3 big ones and 2 small that I have to take pictures of.
    Everyone of those quilts are beautiful! I have only seen hand quilting in a straight line before and loved it, but, your quilting and designes just bring a feeling of home and warmth! Yes, I agree, please teach more how to do quilting that way!

    I think "unique" and "special" and "extraordinary" would be better adjectives to describe your work (and yourself) than "weird"

    If my handwork was as lovely as yours, I could throw away the seam ripper, too. You do such great work.

    To each of us, quilting brings joy! The way we quilt is not important, the joy is.

    I aspire to do hand quilting. It would take a million years for me to do what you do! :D

    Not Strange!!!! - Wonderfully talented and creative. You have a special gift of creating something spectacular with minimal physical items. The extrodinary images you create with needle and thread are amazing and I for one love to look at and deeply admire.

    you said you were fishing for compliments,well you caught one. I do not have the patience to quilt by hand. I tried it. Made one quilt. That was that.

    Love your work. Respect the amount of time to make a quilt like you do. You are not weird. You are a talented, committed quilter. WooHOO, you go girl.

    WOW! Thanks for the close up of your quilt showing the knife edge. You are inspired! As I look at your even stitches, I'm reminded of the piano teacher that said "practice makes perfect" - you have "practiced" a very long time and it shows! How very talented you are!

    Borntohandquilt: your work is phantastic. Just a couple of questions: do you also walk everywhere you go? Do you have sheep for wool and/or a cotton field, chickens on the balcony? grow your own coffee beans or teas, have a cow or goats for milk, kerosene lamp for light and a coal burning stove? There must be a handcrank grammophone in your house (no such junk as a CD player for music), and a 2-holer in your backyard?
    It is great what you do, but I love the advantages that come with new technology.

    As an ex embroiderer, I am hypnotised by your work. Sie sind nicht kömisch!
    I too love the advantages of new technology, but I also believe we should take arts on with us - it is what civilises us.
    I don't feel that toilets are an indicator of civilisation. Especially when we use 9 litres of potable water each time we go, and many people do not have acces to potable water or a toilet.

    Wouldn't it be boring if we were all alike? Do your own thing and enjoy it. Your quilting is awesome.
