    My new quilts!

    So the Blue one is my Star Pinwheel quilt hand quilted. First one EVER!!!. I was so glad to get that out of my hands.

    The Orange and brown is my second quilt. Also a WIP it is for my mother who adores autumn! ( I started it in autumn lol!)

    The green and pink one is the top layer of my WIP of a quilt comforter/bedspread for a full. It was going to be for my sister but she change her room scheme to parchment and cranberries so...now I have that on hiatus. I haven't made the quilt sandwich with it yet but I hope if I can get advice in my other posted question on machine quilting that the project will finally come off the To-do list. (because hand quilting is a beast to do!) (If i can't get all my pics in here then i'll open another post

    Very nice quilts. I too hand quilt, but only small projects. It take too long otherwise. Thanks for sharing you quilts with us. Mary

    All your work is very pretty, and I love the star one.

    I love your pink paisley, but the others are also gorgeous. Great work on all, and thanks for sharing.

    Very beautiful work!!! I hand quilt most of my quilts. My DH built me a quilt frame with PVC pipe. I saw a PVC frame at Hobby Lobby, and just knew my DH could take 1 look at it and go build it for me. He built 1 for me, and several for my quilting friends. Maybe someone could do that for you. It's super cheap to build!

    @stitchnnana: I have no such building skills but my gramps does...he told me he'd rather buy it. Then my father tells me that he could make it ...now they argue about who has the better skills to make it. Lol. So not getting that anytime soon. lol
