A Finish! (Kinda Rare Around Here)

How many of you out there still quilt by hand?  I think it may be a lost art that is making a comeback.  I've just finished my first hand-quilted project, a pillow. 

I bought the pre-printed mini whole cloth at the VT Quilt Festival from The Stencil Co's booth a couple of years ago.  I would work on it for a while, get frustrated, put it away.....I finally put it together into a pillow using some "out of my comfort zone" trim and backing.  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and now I am a little better at the stitching.  Apparently, I like hand quilting as I have another small project in the works. 

However, in the interest of life expectancy, I will still continue to machine quilt most of my projects.

Until Next Time,
