    Hand quilted this!

    My 2nd attempt at hand quilting ... went much better than my first attempt ... I did "big" stitch hand-quilting, and actually marked my quilt so it made it much easier. I did have a hard time with the curves, so more practice needed there.

    Here's some pics ... I left the chalk lines on so you could see where I quilted the light grey

    That's great! I'm sure it took patience (which I don't have).

    WOW! Beautiful work, and I admire your patience.
    As much as I hate it, my seam ripper is my best friend.

    That's a lovely 2nd attempt at hand quilting and I like the pattern and colours. Practice makes perfect, so keep trying and as with driving, slow down for the corners.
    Many ideas and desires but not enough hours in a day - I love quilting

    Two things: I LOVE your hand quilting. I LOVE the design you made. Aren't they Drunkard's Path?

    I love to hand quilt and your quilt is beautiful. I have never seen drunkard's path blocks set together like that. I love your fabric choices and the setting it is truly unique and stunning. Keep up the great work.

    They are kind of drunkard's path ... I used that template, but then had to trim the blocks because there was too much blue, and the oranges wouldn't "join"

    Thanks all! I had fun!
