    I count 7 stitches on top per inch. Not sure if u just count what is on top or both top and bottom.

    Cowpie2, your stitches are great! I would love to see the front of your quilt because I think I see some blue...and I love blue quilts! Where in St. Paul are you? I am in Inver Grove Heights.

    It is gorgeous! What is the key to getting stitches the same size on top and bottom?

    your skill level at handquilting is much better than you are giving yourself credit for! I don't have the patience for handquilting, but do envy those that do.

    It is beautiful. When I first looked at it, I thought it was machine quilted your stitches were so perfect.

    Your quilting looks wonderful and your stitches are nice and even to me that's the hardest part your quilt will be beautiful when its done.

    Wow, your stitches look great to me! I always end up with just a little prick showing on the back...not good.

    Your stitches are so even. Beautiful hand quilting. It deserves a blue ribbon!

    Very pretty. Only your 3rd attempt? You certainly can't tell.

    I found when I was learning that the eveness of the stitches matters a lot more than the size. Yours are both pretty small and very even! Congrats!

    Beautiful!! I'd take consistent stitch length over tiny any day. I think you're doing a GREAT job. Did you know Borntoquilt actually takes one stitch at a time when she quilts?? She's my inspiration, too. ;) LOVE handquilting, and it's such a dying art.
