    Have you ever done stippling by hand? It' s a lot of work but I think it is worth to try....

    (The measurement tape you see is metric.)

    Awesome job with the hand quilting. Such tiny, even stitches.

    Well, I think it takes me 1,5 to 2 hours.

    I sure wish I could hand quilt like that! I gave up & went to machine quilting because my stitches are so big. Your stitches are so very tiny & even. Beautiful...can't wait to see more.

    That is the most incredible hand quilting I have ever seen. What an accomplishment.

    Thank you all for your nice comments and your compliments - that really makes me proud. I'm really an avid handquilter and I try to do my best to keep this old tradition alive. In Germany we almost don't have a quilting tradition and many people still don't know what a quilt is!
    If you want to see more of my work you can have a look on the link in my signature. I will post some pictures here from time to time.

    I would love to learn how to do this. Is there a video somewhere of how it is done? Perhaps you could do one for your site.

    No, I'm sorry, there is no video. But it is quite easy to do the stippling - just quilt the lines very near to each other! :)
    John Flynn published a book about stippling and trapunto. I don't know if it is still available.

    I love to quilt by hand - so relaxing - but have sort of just started. How long have you been doing it and how many have you made before getting this good?
    Your work is so beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing
