Quilt for a friend.

Well, not a close friend but a former employee of Oh Sew Cool
Met her in the store and she's never had a hand quilt so she sent me this one to do for her.
It was fun.
Now to get it back home to her....
She is doing the binding.

Looking at that lovely quilt and realizing that each and ever one of those thousands of stitches were put in that quilt by hand, your hand.. it boggles the mind.  What a great talent you have Debbie and the diligence to do all of that hand work.  Wow!

Thanks everyone, Yooper, I do not have perfect stitches but I love hand quilting for others just because...and myself of course.
I am going to learn machine quilting this year. My dd Janae has already done two this way and she just started quilting two years ago.....
I just love the time to hand stitch....more goes into it....

Now if I could not sit and sew for hours every day and it took me forever to do it, I might not. LOL

Your quilting on this is exquisite!  There's something about touching a quilt that someone has hand done that is so warming, like a connection.

I do agree that hand quilting it is a softer touch.
Although I've been know to fondle LAQ ones I've had done lately too....

I love the look of the quilts others do on here with their machines, all those small circles gathered together, the row by rows, just majestic.....I could so it with hand stitching too , takes longer but wawy back when, the norm was like I do now.

Thank you everyone....I have another one on the frame now, and it's mine.

Then a second frame has one for another friend...but this one a gift....

I can't sit and watch tv and do nothing with my hands, thank goodness for quilting...

Nice work! I like to have hand pieced tops hand quilted and my machine pieced tops machine quilted. My quilt stitches are pretty uneven, but the thought is there at least. And I am so impressed with the work of Quilting Granny and Stewy. I think both techniques bring a lot.

Yes both do wonderful work, I have used Quilting GRannie before but not Stewy but I have many friends who have.....Love machine quilting and long arm but I am mostly a hand quilter.

No my dd wants me to get a Sweet Sixteen so we can both use it. So I"m thinking about it. SHe can keep it at her house and I can visit.....
Might look into another one first....

That just flat-out amazes me  Debbie.  I am sure that if I even could hand quilt, it would take me a year to do one quilt, maybe, if I worked on it diligently.

Some quilts that are mine, take a lot longer when I do fill in stitching and such....My stippling stitching takes a long time....SID or shadow stitching is quicker...
