    When I first started doing hand stitches about 6 years ago, they were about 1/4 of an inch long. I think I have improved. What do you say?

    I love the look of hand quilting, but I am too impatient to get each project done and dusted....your stitches look perfect :D

    Nice job. My eyes just aren't up to those challenges any more.

    I think it looks outstanding! I've only hand quilted one small table runner. I discovered right away that it's a LOT harder than it looked!

    Anne - I am a total novice when it comes to a question about "hand quilting". BUT - professionally - I was in Quality Assurance and I really would say - "Looks perfect"!!! In my opinion - I would wish I could do work as exacting as that. I LOVE IT!!! (could you tell?)

    What I am amazed at each stitch looks to be the same space inbetween. Excellent job...I would say you have mastered the art of hand quilting.

    Hand quilting is so gorgeous! Yours is no exception. If you ever run out of tops, I could send you some!

    Thanks everyone. This puts a smile on my face. I have never taken a class so all I know is from books and television. I just go slowly and hope for the best.

    I have tried a number of things to mark with, but recently one of the ladies in my little group at church told me that she just uses ordinary classroom chalk. I love it. 72 cent for a box of 12.....yeah!
