    Hand quilted

    Just finished putting the binding on this one. I hand quilted it.... not my favorite thing to do but at least I know I can if I have to. At least 90 hours spent on the quilting, another 5 on the binding. That's not counting all the cutting and piecing which was done by machine. But I like the way it turned out.

    Wow you did an amazing job on the quilt, especially the hand quilting. I only wish I could, but my hands can't take it. So I guess I will have to admire those that can.

    The quilt is very pretty and the hand quilting is great also. I do hand quilting, so I know that it takes a lot of time and patience. Way to go!!!!!!

    Fabulous! And I have to laugh -- not at you. When I took my disastrous first quilt class, the teacher (who is also the shop owner) started out talking about fabric selection. Rule #1 is that no uses solids but the Amish. I guess you never had that teacher! You and a lot of others who would not have these gorgeous results. Thanks for sharing and brightening my day.
