Hand Quilting

It has been so long since I posted here. I hope everyone has begun the New Year well. I just wanted to post a couple of photo's of my version of Kim's gorgeous Flower Garden quilt.

After spending about 18 months putting this quilt together, I decided I wanted to take my time quilting it. I am using six different coloured perle 8 threads and very densely hand quilting across the entire quilt. My rows are 1/4 inch apart and that is making the quilt very textural and bubbly!!!

The quilting shows up really well on the back...

I have one long panel to go and then the borders. It takes a while, but I am not in any hurry. Hand work is worth the wait don't you think?
