    just a small thing trying to get my stitches regular. Starting to get the hang of it and I like to hand quilt. I know some on her do great work. If I could only get half as good I would be happy. I guess it comes with a lot of time and practice. Thanks for looking. sorry the last picture came out fuzzy it was the back.

    Looks like you are a natural at hand quilting. This all looks good to me.

    Looks great! And you were even brave enough to use a contrasting thread. You're a natural.

    I figured a colored thread would show the stitches better and help me try to keep them about the same size. I hope to continue to improve. I really like the handquilting.

    And this is your first "attempt" at hand quilting? Looks like a pro to me...

    Nice work..your stitches look pretty even to me. But then again, I don't hand quilt, so my judgement is not very valuable!! LOL

    Your hand quilting is great. Much better than when I started and I feel I am just up to you now after 3 yrs.
