Recently, I took an online class via Quilt University in hand quilting. I don't imagine it's the worst hand quilting that's ever been done, but it certainly has to be in the top two. Oh well . . . it's the best I can do, and everyone has to start somewhere.

I took the class just to see if it was something I wanted to pursue. The jury is still out on that question, but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I'm not happy with the hoop I have, and so suggestions would be appreciated. Also, I couldn't figure out how to rock the needle at all, and so it's strictly stab stitching. That's the way I embroider too. Maybe I'm not cut out for anything else.

This is about the size of a doll quilt. I'm going to bind it in the red strip you see across the top and hang it with the rest of my doll quilts.

It looks beautiful to me too! I would rather sew a queen size quilt than hem a pair of pants, so anyone that hand quilts is tops! Keep up the good work.

It's really beautiful. I think you're just too hard on yourself. I assume you enjoyed your Quilt U class.
