    I am hand quilting this...I had to have a good friend of mine who is a expert sandwich my top together since I couldn't do it myself due to my broken leg and I'm hand quilting this. Than she is going to finish putting this together for me.

    My stitches isn't the best but this is my second quilt that I'm Hand Quilting so please forgive me for my non straight stitches.

    I'm also showing the backing on this and you can see where I've been Hand Quilting this.

    This is the only Quilt that I am working on right now.

    Thanks for looking....

    Love the pattern of penguins ... perfect! I am also a hand quilter ... the quilting might take a little longer, but I love the peacefulness of sitting and sewing. Look forward to seeing your completed quilt.

    P.S. Hope you are doing okay with your leg and managing to get around. Take care,

    What a darling quilt! You are doing a good job. Sorry about your leg & hope it is healing well. It is actually good that you can hand quilt to pass the time while recuperating. I have handquilted since 1996 or '97. On a cool Fall evening or day, it is so nice to sit with a quilt on you while stitching. Good Luck with your leg & Thank You for sharing.

    I really like your quilt....as far as the stitches...they look even and small to me... I'm also a beginner quilter... but know that you should have your stitches as uniform as possible.
