Proof that I can hand quilt!

This is one of my first quilts. I loved squares because they were easy and I was crazy about brights. This quilt has been used and abused by my little girl, but I think it looks pretty good for being five years old. I did hand quilt this and as much fun as that was, I will never do it again because I love getting things done fast and you all know that hand quilting takes time.

Here's a picture of the whole quilt.

It's not abused.....just loved! I think it is a pretty quilt for sure! It is nice to see you let you use it rather than "save" it!

I've hand-quilted too. The last quilt I did was my first attempt at machine-quilting, and it's the absolute BEST for getting the job done quickly! However, I really need lots of on-the-job-training (or something!) because it wasn't the best of jobs... But I know my Mom will love it anyway.
Just as your daughter *loves* the one you did. And with good reason. It's really cute! :-)

Very sweet quilt! Isn't great when someone loves what you've made for them?

I also love to hand quilt, but I'm not very good at it. I tend to poke my finger under the quilt so much I'll bleed. Much safer for me to use my machine!

I love to hand quilt too but like you, I like to get a project finished (well.....that is a lie, I have a million projects still not finished....hummmmm) but faster is better. I love hand quilted items and I have done a few in the past. You did an awesome job, love the quilt.

It's very feminine and I love the colours. It must be very soft from all the loving it's had for 5 years.
