    I did do hand quilting!

    I always say I never hand quilted, but this table top has been on my dining room table for a couple of years and I forgot completely about it. I made it years ago. I hand quilted it. It's very big stitches, so it's probably not very good, but at least I can say I did it.

    Looks nice to me! Big stitch hand quilting is a valid choice in my book!

    It looks just great! Consistent stitch size is more important than stitch length.

    It's always so nice to see hand quilting stitches. Yours may be big but they are nice and even. If you want to continue in this vein - just keep on doing it. They get smaller with every project. Your first one shows real promise. You've done a great job!

    I love to hand quilt. You did a great job and I don't think they look too big.
