I assembled this top during the summer of 2016 at the cottage and then began hand quilting it during a vacation in Cuba. It gave me a wonderful opportunity to chat with curious people. I was able to explain the concept of quilting to a young boy from England who stopped to inquire, “What are you knitting?” I finished the quilting during the winter, picking it up at random.
My hand quilting group all weighed in on how I ought to quilt it. I sure appreciate the experience of those wonderful hand quilters. My preferred method of quilting is by machine, so as a relatively new hand quilter, I certainly appreciate their advice.
I entered it in some fall fairs in the hand quilted baby quilt category and won a few prizes. Maybe I am improving on my hand quilting!
