    Hand Quilted Items

    I have been quilting about a year now. Have had a lady with a long arm doing my quilting. She told me I should hand quilt some, sure HA HA!!! Well I tried it , and believe it or not I loved it. I also did one as a tie quilt, I did enjoy it, [ even though it was a little hard on the fingers].. I have never sent pictures before, but I am going to try....

    Great job on all, but I like the green one best. Keep up the good work. I like to do hand quilting also, yet it is hard on the fingers and hands.

    You have a wonderful color sense. These are lovely. As a dedicated hand quilter, I have to tell you that if you love it to start, you will love it forever. And it will get easier, and you will get better, and you will be amazed at what you can do. Your fingers won't hurt either! I'm always happy to see others joining the ranks of the hand quilters. People always say to me - no one does that anymore. But we do!!!! Keep up the beautiful work and make sure to share them with us.

    You have done a very nice job. Your table toppers and quilts are very pretty.
    I don't mind hand quilting at all, it's just that it takes longer.I have hand quilted a couple of things, a doll quilt and a patriotic quilt. I have only machine quilted some wall hangings but they weren't that hard.

    My sentiments exactly. There's just something special about handquilting...once you get started it really wins you over.

    Lovely! I have one small wall hanging hand quilted and a start of a cathedral window. How I wish my fingers would cooperate!

    Those are very pretty. Sometimes we need to do things outside our comfort zone. Well done.
