This is a picture of "Sweet Tea" and I am hand quilting her--whew! This is the first large size quilt that I have hand quilted and it is taking me awhile to do. It's especially hard to do in hot weather, since I use a square lap hoop to quilt. So I haven't been working on it a lot this summer for obvious reasons. I do like working on it though because it is very soothing as I think I have mentioned before and am probably repeating myself (bear with me--I'm getting old!!!) It looks so nice, too when it is done properly and about a quarter of mine are done correctly now that I took a class and learned the proper technique. Our teacher was so good and put up with my gushing over her time and again about how much I was learning from her!!!
"Sweet Tea" is taking on a personality all her own and at times can be as soft as a purring kitten, but other times very sassy, as in not letting me place those stitches exactly where I want them to go. Do your quilts talk to you, too?Let quilting help you make someone smile!
