Hand Quilting

Awhile ago I finished my medallion quilt top that was a part of a quilt-along.  It was a lot of fun (and a bit nerve wracking) designing each new round when you didn't know what was to follow.

I did it, and I love the result.  This quilt is going to be a fave, it already is!

The Prints Charming print that I used for the centre medallion was perfect to allow me to try hand quilting for the first time.  My stitches are too big, but it did give me something to do while watching the men's tennis in the semi-finals of the Australian Open.

sorry, flash photo

I do like the way the print is now framed as it pops a little more, now lets just hope I don't make a hash of  quilting the rest of it!

More creative type stuff here.
