    only 2 months from start to finish. 50 blocks and a word to the wise - feed sacks are nasty to hand quilt.

    That is sooo nice! So feedsacks are a bugger huh? I'll have to remember that!

    I've found some needles that I can hand quilt batiks with easily and maybe they could help you out in the future. They're John James Gold n' Glide and go through batiks like butter. They're slippery little devils so I use a finger cot with them.

    The actual quilt was pieced 70+ years ago. Kay's mother did the work, and Kay contacted me and asked if I would finish it for her daughter's 1st baby who is arriving on April 1st. The 2 hearts are a symbol of the efforts made by great grandmother and grandmother for this newest member of the family.

    Thanks for the suggestion as I am always looking for a better way to hand quilt. I blasted through the end of my favorite thimble finishing up this project.
