I wish I had inherited my mother's sewing and quilting gene. I was born with a glue gun, but can't seem to find the patience for sewing. Looks fabulous. Those colors are just gorgeous.


Makes my fingers sore just thinking about it. It is turning out great so don't stop now!


That's looking fabulous.

Looks like I'm going to be adding YOU to that list of quilters I admire. It looks fantastic!


That is the cutest cheater fabric I've ever seen, and you're doing a wonderful job on the stitching.


Excellent stitching and we quilters use a machine! lol

Just curious, do you use the rocking stitch? It allows you to get many stitches on a needle. It does go faster than a stitch at a time. You do need a modern thimble with a ridge in the top. I bet there is a video on YouTube. I haven't hand-stitched in years. I do enjoy it, but I don't seem to have the time anymore.


Shelley, I think I must do both, although I didn't know there was a name for that stitch. I usually try to get a lot of stitches on the needle, but when my fingers start to hurt, I go back to single stitches. I'm not sure if one way is faster or not. I like the hand-stitching, too, but it does not go quickly!


Wow, so gorgeous!! You are amazing for doing all those tiny stitches!! Love all the pretty colors!! xo Heather


I love love love it. The colors are perfect. I don't do tons of hand work like this. Your stitches look good.

I was created with a adhesive gun, but can't seem to discover the tolerance for stitching. Looks fantastic. Those shades are just stunning.

Confgrats, lovely colours - suffragette colours? Nice to see hand stitching as well, I do all of my quilts by hand always think thay look better than machie stitched.
