Wow! It’s been a big blog day for me today! First of all, I want to say “hello!” to everyone who has stopped by today via the post about my Love Beads quilt on Sew, Mama, Sew! I was so excited to have my quilt chosen as one of their Quilts of the Day for their Quilting Month II! It’s very cool for me to think that people outside of my little world think that something that I made was good. I try so hard to remind myself that the most important thing is for me to be happy with my work, but when I hear it from others, it’s almost overwhelming. I really thank you all for each kind word you have to say! Know that you all have made my day!
And as for that hand quilting tutorial, I am so jazzed that people are into it! I think my plan will be to get my next quilt (another of my Finish It or Pitch It projects–this one’s been in progress since, oh, 2005!) ready to sandwich in the next day or so. I’d like to have a clean slate to use, just so it’s easy to show and for you to see. I should stress though that I’m no professional. All that I know about hand quilting has been through a few books and lots of trial and error. But, I think it’s one of those things that once you understand the basics, it’s okay to make up your own rules as you grow more comfortable.
Keep an eye out early next week for it!
