    This is a hand appliqued/hand quilted one that I started in 2008 and finished in 2009.....lots of work!

    The other one was hand-pieced and hand quilted for my son in 2006 when I first started quilting. Don't know if the picture shows it well, but there is one "red" piece in it....requested by my son.

    I am going to do some hand piecing and hand quilting again one of these days.

    WOW!!! I am impressed. Just started hand quilting and I love it. Do mostly machine work, but Im hooked on hand quilting and english paper piecing, and applique. I love your work.

    Me too, suebee. My hand is aching and I'm on here for a rest!

    Hope we get to be as good at it as ccearley! Wonderful work. Love the flowers best!

    Very unique idea. I have never done any hand quilting, but need to try something soon. So much beautiful work, especially in the blue coverlet.

    The art of hand quilting and piecing is not seen very often, thanks for sharing. They are beautiful.

    These quilts are magnificent. Iím sure there were too many hours to count going into those heirlooms. Thank you for sharing them with us.
