    My first handquilting project

    Had too much fun deciding on the "right" colors for the blocks.
    This was my first attempt at hand quilting.
    Gave up on the idea of small stitches and tried for consistant.

    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    Really cool! Just learned how to hand quilt at a retreat this week. Don't know how much I will do but my stitches are consistent but big.

    love the colours and your quilting looks great - consistent size is brilliant, you will probably find after a while that your stitches will get smaller, keep going with the handquilting x

    I love the star pattern in the quilting for the lone star state. love your quilt. Keep quilting. Hand quilting is so rewarding.
    I've been hand quilting for over 20 yrs. It takes practice but your stitches will get smaller.

    Colors really represent topography of Texas -dry and hot in southwest and cool and wet in eastern counties. Well, sometimes it's cool and wet. Central Texas could still use some rain now.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Great job, love the color combo, looks like Texas terrain, green eastern Texas, dryer as you go west.
