Hand Quilting

I have picked up an old hand quilting project to work on.
I am outlining the portrait.  I know my stitches are not tiny, but I had a lady tell me that is okay as long as they are consistent.
I added some texture to the tail.  As I work on it I am sure I'll be adding more texture to different areas of the quilt.

I bought this thimble last year at my LQS and so far I really like it!  I usually have long nails and I like there is room for my nails.


This will be my project for a while.  I found some small beads I might add to some of the flowers also.

Have a great day ya'll!

Starting to quilt again ought to help your recovery a lot, plus all that help you are getting from the kitties! I'm glad you are doing ok.

I'm glad you feel well enough to do some hand stitching, Missy.

Good job you needed a handwork project, especially with your treadle and hand crank machines would probably kind of strain your tummy area.

Yes, constant sized stitches are all that matters. There are some projects that I like a larger stitch on, not a smaller stitch.

I haven't seen that kind of thimble before... it looks perfect for longer nails!
