    Looks like a nice quilt. All hand quilted?? WOW! I am impressed with people who can do hand quilting! That is a lot of work! Thanks for sharing!
    Have you done any other quilts since `98?

    Very pretty quilt. I'm impressed that you made it all by hand. It takes me a long time on the machine so I can only imagine how long it took to do it all by hand. Great work :!: :!:
    Thanks for sharing.

    Yes I have been quilting since 98 this was a test to see if I could get it to post or not. I am such a dummy when it comes to computers. My daughter posted it and I hope that I remember how. LOL

    Unbelievably pretty! Hand stitching the entire quilt must have taken you forever. But wasn't it worth the effort considering how amazing it it? You did incredible work luvmy!

    It took me a semester to piece it since I took a class thru the parks and recreation dept. The handquilting I did in about two weeks cause I was driven to get it done. I put up a couple of sawhorses with a couple of two by twos and stuck it over the living room couch and just quilted away. I will try and get some of my more recent quilt pictures posted. Thanks all for the compliments. This one will always be near and dear to my heart cause it set me off on a wonderful adventure in the world of quilting.

    Sharon, the one in my avatar is one I pieced this past spring. I use it as a table topper on my dining room table. I forget the name of it but it was really easy to piece.

    I LOVE it when people do the whole thing by hand. I can hand quilt, but I am the biggest chicken in the world when it comes to hand pieceing. Wonderful job!!
