    my back surgery recovery quilt

    i had some pretty intense back surgery the end of march of this year. i've only been sewing a little over a year and i really liked that tutorial from #1piecemaker on her double bit axe quilt. she's been trying to get me to hand sew forever now and ive just laughed at her! well...there i was.....fresh out of the hospital, on my side with pillows and ice, head on a pillow, sewing these little pieces together because of my incessant desire to touch fabric! 374 pieces later, bought a hoop online, its all quilted and i absolutely LOVE IT! now im planning my next hand sewn/quilted one! thanks so much for looking and thanks a million to #1 for her fantastic tute and her friendship. ps~this only took me about 8-9 weeks start to finish! thanks for looking!

    You did a beautiful job, but I just can't imagine, like you, doing something so amazing all by hand, but then, we play with the cards we're dealt and make the best of it. As I can see by your photo you did just that! I hope by now you're healing and able to get around a little better.

    Hope you are feeling better. Lovely quilt. Can't imagine doing something like that by hand and being sick on top of it. I bow down to you. BrendaK

    What a great quilt, and what a great spirit you have to have completed it while you were confined to bed. It is quite an accomplishment, and one you are obviously proud of, and really enjoyed. Kudos to you for hanging in there and making a lovely quilt!

    Glad your back surgery is behind you What a great way to use your recovery time. Your quilt is beautiful. I hope you are doing good now. Back surgery is no fun. I had it done many yrs ago. Best wishes!

    Kudos to you for a job well done. I love scrappies and this pattern sure lends itself to a scrappy. I also congratulate you on making it entirely by hand. I hope your recovery continues successfully and thanks for sharing your quilt.

    It makes me think of a rainbow. First, it's as beautiful & colorful as one. Secondly, it's the "good" after the "storm". I hope you're feeling much better & back to sewing up a storm!
