one more christmas project

I am making a quilt for my 2 year old for Christmas and for some crazy reason I decided to hand quilt it.  I was a little nervous that hand quilting wasn't a good idea because of time, but I finished it up last night and just need to bind it now.

  1. I've never tried hand quilting. It's on my to-try list but I'm nervous I'll mess up and ruin a good quilt top. Yours looks great!

  3. You're doing well, last year I finished one on Christmas eve... Like the other comments, I find hand quilting scary for some reason! Though I have done simple hand tying which has worked well. Merry Christmas.

  4. Oh... Do I know the feeling. I hand quilted my first quilt last year for Christmas and swore never do be under that kind of time pressure again. So what do I find myself doing in December this year? Yep, you got it. Hand quilting another quilt. I'm beginning to think that is December's fault. Something in the air that makes me start crazy projects LOL.

    Well done on finishing on time. Look forward to se the whole quilt.

  8. All these comments about hand quilting making people nervous make me chuckle because until recently I was the same but in reverse!

    I have just taken up machine quilting and am improving with practise - before that I only did hand quilting for better control!

  9. I've never hand quilted a project (I have one I intend to) would you recommend it or should I just skip it and stick with the machine?
