    Here are two pics of a quilt I hand pieced over the summer but set down. I started back up over the weekend and am hand quilting. It is roughly twin size and has a blue border and blue backing. I am using chalk so that is what you may see in the pic.

    I have never really sewn before except maybe to add buttons so things may look a bit off.

    The last pic is a square showing by stitching. I have 21 squares done out of 150 (plus the border to do). I may add a smaller diamond in the larger diamond later.

    I think your quilt is beautiful! You chose great colors, and when you get it all quilted I think you will be very pleased!

    Great job. Your stitches are very good. I'd love to be able to hand stitch like that and I've been sewing for years.

    God bless you for the hand quilting. You've done a splendid job piecing the quilt. Just wait until you are done quilting and you will notice a big transformation from before and after. Don't quit now!

    Very nice, doesn't look like a newbie to me. When I opened it the colors reminded me of velvet, great colors and quilting. You should be very proud of this, hope you are planning another :D

    Well done Rob, looking great for someone who has only sewn on buttons.

    Some people are born to quilt.
