Bird in the hand…

I decided to call this quilt Bird in the Hand, why you ask. When I first started to put together this quilt, my 2nd one ever, I decided that I would try to quilt this baby by hand. I machined stitched the pieces and the blocks together, but I needed a challenge and boy did I get one. It looks so easy in the YouTube videos I was watching. After many finger pricks and 2 calloused middle fingers I finally got it finished, it only took 3 months, and not any fancy pattern here. Please don’t judge my stitches, I’ve been told by pro quilters that it takes many, many quilts to master the hand quilting stitch.

BTW: It was very, very relaxing, I think I’ll give it another try.
