Celebrating tonight. I finally finished my Star Quilt and it is on my bed! I hand quilted it for ME and have finally finished putting th binding on. I don't make many that I keep or hand quilt so I am celebrating. Jayne
Hurray!!! That's my New Year's resolution.. to make one for ME! Congratulations and be warm! Kay
congrats! be sure to take a picture for us!
Well done Jayne! My birthday block quilt for 2011 is the first one I am keeping too and it makes it more interesting.
I am celebrating with you. That's wonderful. I hope you'll show us a picture. I still haven't made a quilt for me. Someday.
And where is the picture, young lady? You know we all live vicariously through the others who manage to complete a quilt every now and then.
Looking forward to seeing your accomplishment!
Yes, where is the picture. There is nothing like sleeping under your own quilt. I have quilts on all three of my beds now.
I kept me warm in my very cold bedroom. I see that I have the dating screwed up on my camera but believe me it was just done. LOL. Jayne
I love the quilting!! Did you do it by hand? I want to do some of those feathers on the quilt I'm making for my dh, but I'm not sure what to do. I do want to do it with the machine, so I'm thinking stencils (since I have no free motion experience). Beautiful!!!
I uses stencils and this quilt is hand quilted. I used water sol. markers.
I don't have a lot of success with FMQ but stencils do help.

It's beautiful and the quilting is just perfect for it. This is a quilt to be proud of!
Beautiful! Love the colors, I'm impressed by anything done by hand. Tara
Gorgeous! The stitches are perfect! You should be celebrating! Thanks for posting the picture.
Thanks everyone. Nice to be celebrating with your approval.lol.
Really like to hand quilt but it is wasted on some quilts.
I love your quilt and your hand quilting is beautiful! I wish I had the time and talent to hand quilt.
Very nice and well done! It's good that you did something for yourself to use. Does this mean no more jumping on the bed?!
OH lovely! Sweet satisfaction! It looks really, really good on your bed.
Jayne that is amazing!!!!!!!! It is a piece of art. Do you have a pattern?? I agree that I will not hand quilt ever quilt I make, and most of them my family does not want hand quilted. They feel guilty using them and I want them to be used.
I have just started to make quilts for me, it's long over due and we should be as good to ourselves as we are to others lol!!!!
