I made three quilts in that longish size for the exhibition. For this one I used just half of a complete wholecloth design- just for fun!
    OH! how beautiful! You did that all by HAND?!!! WOW! I am so impressed! Danke for sharing!

    Yes, I only do hand quilting. Sometimes I use thread with the same color than the fabric, but somestimes I use contrasting colors. For this quilt in a brown I used a rust and a golden thread - unfortunately it does not show so well on the pictures. I will try to do another one where you can see it later.

    No, this wasn't preprinted. I used several stencils and some freehand quilting. It's wonderful to read that you also love that kind of quilting!

    I agree with Dorothy. This is just intriguing that you hand quilt to such beautiful and intricate work. Everything seem so well executed. You are a talented lady.

    mpspeedy, she isn't signed on right now so she will tell us later but in another post she was also asked this and she said she does it freehand and 'it just comes natural' to her. What a gift huh! I love her work.
    Regards, Dorothy
    That is hard to believe. That work is awesome!
