    Just finished last night. This was pieced by machine, but quilted by hand. I wanted to make a quilt with only HSTs and came up with this arrangement. There are over 40 hours of hand quilting alone. I'm starting to think I'm a little crazy to invest so much time, but I guess it keeps me out of trouble.

    I love the blue and yellow. Your quilting is great. I think that hand quilting is really special and something that I need to try soon.

    What a beautiful quilt, love blues and yellows together. I can appreciate the hours of hand quilting, it truly is worth the effort when you see this stunning result.

    Fabulous work. You must be so proud. Someone in my quilt class made a blue and yellow log cabin and it looks fab. Must get some for my next project.
