    All your awesome pics made wanna post my quilts. The flying geese I made while living in California. Its called California Screaming for a reason. I was stuck there for a few years.
    The heart quilt is not finished yet,close but not quite done hand quilting. Oh, and binding. The button quilt I made while my oldest daughter was in the hospital for a week, and I had a baby to care for and could not be with her.
    The small log cabin was my first try at hand quilting. I used punch and hope it looks OK method. I did figure out how soon after this one. I hang it on the wall.
    The heart applique quilt is not done either. It was for a sister in law that did not last and I lost touch with her. Kind of makes me sad when I look at it. She was nice, and it wasn't her fault it didn't work. I need to finish them all. They are all about 25 years old. Gosh time went fast. I got busy crocheting and raising kids and work and riding bicycles, and now I have lots of birds, and knitting! I need some android clones to help me out. Hey they could do housework maybe?
    A size 12 needle, I can't even thread one now!

    Hand quilting is becoming a lost art and you have some real treasures. Lovely work.
