    I finished this a couple of weeks ago, just could never get a good shot. I hope this does it justice. It was a lot of fun to work on especially to start quilting again after having to stop for a while. (it was torture). It is hand sewn and hand quilted (i was impatient and didnt have a sewing machine XD). I thought it turned out really well. Hope yall think so too!

    yes that is a slightly different blue from what i used on the front but it gave a good effect by highlighting the paisely squares and the whole quilt itself

    measures about 50x50. I actually only had 9 of the paisely squares so thats what influenced the design... and my mom helped me finalize it.. im so indecisive!

    What a great job. I have a small "French Rose" top made that I want to hand quilt, but I've never done it and I have no idea how to start. Did you put it on a frame?

    Very nice! I like the layout of the blocks! The quilting looks very good, too! I enjoy hand piecing and quilting, but don't often do it due to time.

    Thanks all! I used a round wooden frame i borrowed from my mom and just worked my way from the center on out.. I watched a video by amyalamode on youtube that had some good video tutorials that helped me remember how to hand quilt. And im sure you can find some awesome tips here. had i known about quiltingboard before i would have been all over this website like a hungry man at a buffet. Best of luck and i bet it will turn out beautifully!

    Kudos to you. I can't imagine hand quilting, much less hand piecing. Nice Job.
