    Here is my first big project after a couple of smaller quilts. For accuracy, the piece was machine assembled, hand quilted. Although my stitches are not small, I'm pleased with how consistent they are. It was certainly a learning experience. The lessons learned will be brought to the next piece.

    Your grandson doesnt know how lucky he is to be loved so much. Your stitching is perfect. I hope he treasures this quilt as much as you obviously treasure him.

    I'd be turning handsprings if I hand quilted something that nicely!:)



    (In the interest of truth in advertising, the handspring thing is just a figure of speach. My handspring days are WAAAAAAY over!!!)

    Beautiful! I have one like that on "the llist" using scraps and white. Just don't know when I'll ever get around to it! I love the colors in yours. Good for you for hand quilting! Looks just terrific!

    Very nice. Blue is my favorite color. He's gonna love it. :D

    And having nice even stitches is more important than the size.
