Oh Bev, I love your hand quilting.  The first quilt I ever did any hand quilting on was an alternating 9 patch and I designed a celtic knot for the plain blocks.  But I didn't stitch with contrasting thread so it just gets lost in the fabric.  I love that you can see your design..... and your DS did an awesome job on designing it. 

I'm like you, I only hand quilt the special ones now.  And I'm slow at it.  It takes me about 3-4 months if I stick to it pretty seriously.  I have an old quilting frame in the basement so my setup isn't portable.  The last large quilt was on the frame for over a year because I broke my arm after quilting about the second row and couldn't move my arm, let alone do a stitch, for about 6 months.

Keep at it, I'll be watching.....Yeah!!
Jean............

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

I can do running stitches better off the rack than on one....so I do the stick and stab too but my hands work it fast....
Have to check out those John James needles....
I use them for needle turn, the straw ones......

I used soap ta mark this last knot. I am not happy w/that but it I guess it'll be OK. I prefer the rollin' chalk. I have misplaced my last one so bought another one rollin' chalk thingy when I was in Houston.

My mom is 84 and she is just now showing the signs. If I'm lucky I will be her when I grow up and by then, I'll be retired.....from quilting......

I don't know what I'll do when Arthur gets so bad I can't stitch.

That is the only thing that will force me to machine-quilt. And I won't be happy about, but GOTTA quilt!

This is what is forcing me to go to machine, and I love hand quilting so much. Right now I'm still working on Friends of Baltimore, which is tough, because of all the layers.  I have to go Mon. for cortozone injections into 3 fingers, not looking forward to it, but it does help.  I'm hoping after this quilt I will still be able to do hand quilting that isn't as thick and just take my time.  This getting old stuff is just for the birds!!!  I love that pattern that you used Bev!

One of the reasons I machine quilt is that I have way too many quilts that I want to make. It will break my heart when I can't hand quilt as it is my first love in the quilting world. I don't do any hand work at home so it takes me a long time.
My pattern was drawn on graph paper by #2DSon.

VaNella, I agree w/Squirrelfood, Ya get better each time ya hand quilt. It isn't a race, it's a nice slow process. :) When I machine quilt I am always thinking about how much more I need to do to get finished. When I hand quilt I think "Yohoo, I quilted another inch!" :D It also keeps me from going crazy when I am the passenger on a road trip, or at a Dr's office, or in the ER waiting room, or a hospital room sitting w/any family member.

Shame on me.  I don't think I told you how wonderful your quilt is.
Love what you have done with the quilting and that wonderful pattern that show up so well.
I can't wait to see this when it's done.......like you say, as long as it takes.
Good that you enjoy your hand quilting.
