    Yes ... poke and stab hand quilting for the ♥'s using 2 strands embroidery floss. The back looks horrendous, front not so bad.

    Ah so that's how you made those delightful hearts. Great suggestion! Maybe you will see some of this type on some of mine

    How do you get the back stitches to look somewhat like those on the front? Mine are every which way but!

    As I slowly got the courage I started takin' 1 rocking stitch at a time. (With my rocking stitches I have a finger under the quilt & just barely feel the needle come through the fabric then turn it back up. If it comes through far enough ta poke me it came through way too far, & I pull it up. I then use my thumb on top ta control where the needle comes through on top.) When I got good at that I would try 2 rocking stitches at a time then after I got my thimble that fit, I would try 3 then 4 stitches at a time. This slowly progressed over a period of 5 years. Hmmm I might need ta take picts.

    PS Try wool batting, It makes hand quilting much easier!

    Imagine that! ...
    The Ol' Pro, picking up an idea from the New Kid on the Block! I'll look forward to seeing ♥s appearing on your next Mini!

    I couldn't not thank them ... they each had a BIG part in this LITTLE thing!

    I like to take my pics outside when I can as I can get better and truer colours for everyone to see. My flowerbeds are just coming to life for this year, though if you stalk me, you'll get some views from last year at different stages, different flowers.
