Here are some pics of my projects that are all started but not done. The table runner is the only one done but that is because I did the top and then my mom quilted it all together. Everything is hand sewn.

Lovely Star! I LOVE the bears and deers one - and the blue octogans especially but they're ALL great!

Hand sewn too - wow! That's what I used to do before I discovered the board, now I have so much on the go I HAVE to machine more! LOL

Thanx, the bear one is for my husband. and the octogan i think is called a snowball, I started that one when I had my tonsils out and was in bed for 2 weeks. My husband wants to get me a machine but I think its just because he wants his quilt! :oops:

Hey, let him get you one! But don't leave the hand work behind completely - that'd be a shame! I still do a bit from time to time :D

k3n- yeah I will let him, but I think I will only use it on quick projects until I get the hang of it. I won't give up the hand quilting either sonce i still have so much to learn, it may be slow but I really like it!
