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?
