    Beautiful!!! I love hand embroidery in quilts.

    What stitch did you use for the little bird?? I did one in an outline stitch and it looks terrible lol!

    Wow! Your quilt is so pretty. And the blanky is perfection. And the bibs are so pretty too. Your quilting is also. What else can I say? Love them

    All I did was my quilting outline stitch. And it doesn't look too bad. I am not very good at hand quilting but I done my best. Still working on making shorter stitches.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    What beautiful work you do! However did you get the satin binding on the blanky so perfect? I've tried that many times with no success and a lot of frustration I finally gave up trying to master it. Any tips? And congratulations on the newest bud on the family tree.
