    Diane, your quilting is gorgeous!!! I know what you mean though. Hand quilting takes a long time and I need to have other projects going too.
    That is one beautiful quilt!! :D

    Isn't the feeling of completion wonderful? Nice quilt. You did a good job. I don't have enough time in my life to quilt one by hand. I hate doing hand work of any kind, but I love the looks of it.

    You did a wonderful job on the hand quilting. I live in the Northeast and usually try to have a hand quilting project in my frame for the winter....I didn't get to it last year and really missed just the quiet time I spend stitching away....at my own pace.

    Thanks everyone..If I had another choose I probably wouldn't hand quilt...but can't afford to have it done and can't figure out how to do it on my sewing machine..Even bought the quilting foot..!

    That is beautiful!! And all the more special because it's handquilted--looks great, by the way.

    I love pinwheels and your fabrics are so pretty!! I really love the paisley border! Great job.

    What a beautiful job you did. Every point is where it should be, and every seam matches. I love the colors you chose. I am always amazed with by anyone who hand quilts. It takes such a long time, but is so beautiful. Your quilting looks so even. Great job, I must say!

    Dianne, YOu did a beautiful job on the quilting. I love doing it because I can watch TV, hold a conversation or listen to music etc and still be getting something done. Years ago when video rentals were still very popular the girl at the store knew when I was working on a big quilt because I came and rented several movies.
    I am leaving on a cruise thursday and will be sure and take a portable handquilting project with me.
    The more you do the faster you will get. I find it faster in the long run because I don't have to struggle with the machine and rolling it to get it under the arm etc. The part I hate most about making a big quilt is machine attaching the binding before finishing it by hand. Dragging all that fabric and batting around is a real pain.
