Another finished quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That Andi introduced me to hand quilting. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes time so be prepared, I found it very therapeutic to sit and hand sew for a few hours of an evening.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton cloth & thread
  • warm bond wadding.

Q&A with KeencraftaKaren

Leeds Lass asked:
Fabulous quilt - I love the design and the colours. Did you hand or machine quilt?
KeencraftaKaren answered:
Thank you, it's all hand quilted, I loved every minute of it. I've yet to try machine quilting.
NanaJeanFL asked:
Wow! I'm so impressed and just love your quilting. Makes me wonder if I could do a whole quilt. You inspire me!!
KeencraftaKaren answered:
Thank you Jean, it takes time but is worth it, I've started to get withdrawals since I finished it lol,...need to get the next quilt sandwiched so I can start hand quilting that one...
Andi Perejda asked:
This is a lovely quilt and so large! I think you have discovered the joy of Hand Quilting! Great job.
KeencraftaKaren answered:
Thank you Andi, it's all thanks to you and your wonderful tutorials that I discovered the joys. Thank you again.

This is amazing-- love the bold graphic nature of it. Belongs on a wall!
KeencraftaKaren answered:
Thank you :) unfortunately I haven't got a space on my wall big enough, so it will have to adorn my bed lol...
Diane Karraker asked:
Great pattern and piecing. How long did it take you to hand quilt this size? You did a great job.
KeencraftaKaren answered:
Thank you Diane, it's a while since I did this quilt but if I remember correctly. it took about 3 months, sitting in front of the tv every evening for about 5 hours, well worth it though.
