    The first quilt - the branches w/flowers - is stunning. STUNNING!!! I'd love to have that hanging in my house.

    And I love the way you used the hexagons for the cornerstones in the batik(?) quilt. I don't think I've ever seen that before, and I'm letting you know right now, in writing, I'm stealing it. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: It's brilliant - very innovative with a ton of possibilities. Thank you! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Lovely! I appreciate the work you do by hand. Have done some appliques by hand and I'm slow at it.

    Those are great. If you can do that by hand, there would be no stopping you with a machine! And...if you can figure out how to post pix, you'll have no problem working a fancy sewing machine. Go for it!!! And post more pix soon.

    Beautiful art. My favorite is the last one pictured: your
    work-in-progress (WIP). Keep up the good work. You do not need a machine. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

    Wow. Beautiful. Especially knowing you did them by hand. I really admire that.

    My first quilt was by hand - piecing and quilting. (Well, almost finished - a couple blocks left to quilt and binding.) I loved the piecing but am struggling with the quilting. You have given me hope.

    Great job.

    What an amazing body of work...I love your quilts...especially that one with a hex at the corner. You really have an eye for colour and design (and for picking a cute helper). Thanks so much for sharing with us. I have only been machine quilting for a couple of years...maybe get an older machine (they are pretty simple) and make sure it has a manual. If you can navigate around this board and post pics, you will take to using a machine like a duck to water!

    Thank you your all very kind. if it wasnt for my fear of cutting the fabric, the uncertianty of my sewing, the nervous breakdown i nearly have, trying to pull it together,the endless staring at the chaos of fabric thrown everywhere, and the neverending question ts this working.

    my helper grayson, he tells me stop thinking, just do it,
    ill try to make them faster. feel free to steal my ideas, thats what friends are for. show me your photos
