    1st quilt I have done since I broke my wrist

    I have had nothing but problems since I broke my wrist this past November. I finally got to the point I could move it and get it back to somewhat of a normal. Here is the 1st quilt I got done since then....nice to be quilting again. I backed it with polar fleece and it is so soft and warm. I still have to bind it but that should be the easy part...lol.

    This is lovely. Great colors and pattern. It is so simple and shows off the fabric perfectly. What is the name of the panto you used. I really like that too.

    How did you break your wrist? I was decorating my first christmas tree after I was married when I broke mine. The tree was unschathed.

    Yes it was a panto - Whirly Gig LG. Flows very nice and easy the machine seems to track it well.

    We went up skiing the 1st day of the season last year and had a great day. Returned for day 2 and it was getting icy around 11ish and we decided to make one more run.....LOL....famous last words......I hit ice and it brought me completely around and I went down and hit the back side hard, shattered my wrist and got to ride the toboggan down the hill to ski patrol then off to the emergency room. Oh joy!!! It is my right wrist and I am right handed so it has been a long process of healing and getting back on track. Doctor says the way it broke it will probably bother me the rest of my life so I have learned to endure the pain. I bought a snow shoe pass for this year...just a tad fearful of skiing and falling again. So I figured I could be up on the mountain with some friends while my husband and son are having fun up on the mountain.

    Ouch! Your quilt is lovely. When I fell (repeatedly) during downhill skiing I turned to cross-country. I found that I enjoyed it far more. It's so quiet, you're away from the crowds, and you get to actually see the mountains and wildlife.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I am glad you are able to get back to your quilting. It takes time with recovery I know.

    What a beautiful quilt. Your quilting is amazing especially since it's the first you've done since breaking your wrist. Keep your beautiful quilts coming!!!!

    Over the years since I became 40 I have broken both wrists separately and had both in plaster at the same time. Living on my own was a problem at times but I coped. Last year had an operation to remove a bone in the wrist it is now no pain and it doesn't throb at night. After a long time getting back to full mobility has been very time consuming. This site has been very popular.
    The problem putting the quilt on the frame was probably the worst part and it just not wanting to move at times. After 6 months of hand sewing my movement is great.

    Keep going at the twelve month time to the last operation etc you begin to feel fantastic. Even the pain seems to disappear. Your quilting is great.
