    Something you said interested me. You said that you did machine quilting and hand quilting on the quilt. I often do that but always feel that I have the quilt police looking over my shouder and snearing. Often I will stitch in the ditch or echo the sashings and then hand quilt (mostly around the figures) the individual blocks. I find the hand quilting adds a certain life to the blocks that machine quilting would not do. I don't do FMQ so it would be just straight stitching. So what I'm saying is that you have set my heart and mind at ease. That is a lovely quilt!! Sooo -- what parts were hand quilted and what parts were machine quilted?

    BTW. I love monochromatic so this one is absolutely appealing to me.

    My mother was a county fair prize winning hand quilter. We used to give her a hard time because she carried her "quilt brag book" over her grandchild brag book. She has 21 grandkids and 8 great grandkinds!) I did not get into quilting until several years ago because I could not quilt as good as she did. But I loved it and with practice I have gotten much better. Now my mother is no longer with us and I miss her so . I wish she were here to compare our finished products and go to more quilt shows together. She was an insparation to her granddaughters to. Several of them are now heavy into quilting. We love getting together and comparing our creations. She would have loved the red in your quilt. Beautiful.

    Actually it was machine pieced...I've tried machine quilting with absolutely NO success! I love the sitting and hand work so that is all I do, really.
