    Finished my first Quilt!!

    My first quilt is a scrappy 9 patch that I made queen sized for my bed... I started cutting it out on May 16 this year and finished it a few days ago... I was afraid of binding (silly come to find out)... The butterflies and pastels are from a quilt I am making for my Daughters bear...

        So pretty and look at your hand quilting! It sounds funny to say it because I've been sewing and quilting for so long but I'm still working on finishing my first quilt and the one I started hand quilting I don't think I'll ever finish! (I hope I do but it scares me know) So, that is just beautiful. Great job!

              Thank you so much!! My Mother got me started quilting (she has been trying for years) She is a wonderful quilter!! I have thought about trying machine quilting on one of the smaller tops I have put together but thinking about trying to get the middle of a quilt under my machine just seems impossible....

                Beautiful. I love the quilting! Hand quilting is so calming. It's good to do handwork. Nice job, congratulations!

                  Hand quilting is calming, until your hunched over, undoing knots, and counting stitches, while your shoulders start to ache! Ok, I'll admit it I have yet to find the calming secret of hand quilting. Anyone care to enlighten me so I to can have things as beautiful as rikkiwha!

                    Unless you are using the Sulky Multi Colored thread, I find that Thread Heaven that my sister gave me works wonders for knots slipping right out or not getting them at all... I also quilt at night mostly after the kids are in bed so that I can relax in my bed and quilt... That way I dont have to hunch over and get a back ache... I am no expert to be sure but it seems to work for me

                          Love your quilts! The colors in the 9 patch are wonderful. Thanks for the info on the thread. I just wander around wondering which one to buy, this will help!
