Hand Quilt Pictures
« on: October 09, 2014, 11:04:12 AM »
Hope others will put pictures here of some of their awesome hand quilts that they did. Love to see what everyone is doing. Not to take away from posting it on the open board as well.

I see so many on the QH that are hand quilters but don't come to this section.....

The first one is for a friend and then buttons for my dd.

I did these this year and maybe 5 others.

This is one I did for my mom years ago.  Actually, was the last one I finished before hurting my hand.

Debbie & Denise - those are so beautiful.
I'm really envious!
Used to do all my quilting by hand but after breaking my wrist - it's no longer an option for me.
So rather than give up quilting, I bought my Innova Long Arm and now do all my overall quilting with it.
Doing my binding by hands lets me keep some "hand" work in my quilts and since it's a quick straight forward stitching process for me, it doesn't put enormous strain on my wrist as when trying to do the intricate overall quilting.

YAY, thanks for starting this thread Debbie  :)

Beautiful quilting ladies! I hope to "get there" one day too - I need to keep aiming for that bulls-eye  ;)

Denise, how sad that you can no longer hand quilt as much as you used to :(

I'll ask the question...what is that picture of np3 quilts? I don't think I have seen anything like it.

Cheers
Terry

NP3's picture is of her new Tiara she bought to quilt at home with. It's really a nice one too.
She made me a quilt and used her new Tiara and it's lovely.

Well, keep your fingers crossed!  Had surgery last year and hand is doing much better and I have a quilt that has waited, it seems, like forever to pick back up again.  Hopefully, I'll stay nice and warm under it hand quilting.

Beautiful hand quilting everyone.  I used to hand quilt everything but after having problems with carpal tunnel, I don't do much anymore and if I do, it's only for very short stretches.  There's nothing more relaxing than to be tucked under a quilt you are hand quilting and watch the snow fall.  It gives you a chance to revisit every fabric you've chosen to use in the quilt and watch the hills and valleys formed by your needle.  Lisa

Okay, I'll add one.  I'm so slow at hand quilting but I love the way it looks. So, I keep working at it.  I finished this quilt last winter.... after it was on the frame for 2 years.  Okay, I'm not that slow but we are only at the winter house where the frame is for 6 months of the year.  I put this quilt on the frame one spring, got a row or two quilted and went to the summer cabin thinking I'd finish it when we got back in the fall.  Then, I broke my arm 2 days after getting back and couldn't stitch a single stitch that whole winter.  But, I finished it around this past February and am so glad it's done.  I don't have anything on the frame right now.... don't know what I'll do next.

I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

Oh so pretty....Love all the detail work. It takes some people years and years to finish one because it's an ongoing project to lay with as they go.
Me...I usually am doing one for someone or myself so I can sew from 9-midnight or so with a few breaks and stil enjoy it. So I finish them quickly.
I'm not one who needs a lot of sleep but a nap here and there helps.

Hope more pictures come in....

A beautiful finish and a lovely quilt.  That must have been "frustration city", having a broken arm and a quilt on the frame, staring you in the face occasionally, accusingly.
