What are you most proud of? This wall hanging was my first attempt at hand quilting. I really like the relaxing and simple nature of hand quilting. I was pleased with the way the project turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would advise a novice hand quilter to start with a panel. A panel is pre- designed and allows you the time to concentrate on perfecting the hand quilting technique.

Really caught my eye! Love the big pieces - You mention hand quilting, as in applique? This look like nice size pieces to learn on.

Thanks! This project was one whole fabric panel, no applique on this one. I used a panel to allow me to concentrate solely on my hand quilting technique. Absolutely loved the whole process, very relaxing once I was comfortable with the technique.

Yes, I have done the panel trick also to practice. I love the hand stuff, but it's become harder as my hands get older, of course. It's a great project to keep in the car or work on at appointments or something, so you don't have pins everywhere. I visit nursing homes a lot and it sparks peoples interest when they see it, too.
