Now HERE's a Quilt!

Hand quilting, machine quilting, knit or crochet...I say do what you enjoy. Personally, hand piecing and hand quilting do not interest me in the least, but I can certainly appreciate a beautiful quilt that has been pieced and quilted by hand. Here's one that my sister made which is pieced and quilted entirely by hand. The only machine stitching on it was the first stitching of the binding to the edge of the quilt. Every other stitch on this whole quilt was done by hand. Amazing!

I just returned from a long weekend visit to Pennsylvania with my two younger children to spend some time with her and her family. My kids love visiting their PA cousins and all their pets. We experienced our first geocaching adventure which was quite fun, and the kids got to ride the horse and pet the dog and play with the sheep. And I got to take pictures of this beautiful quilt! A great trip all around!

I'll be visiting my favorite quilt shop in the whole world very soon. That's Keepsake Quilting up in Center Harbor, New Hampshire, of course. If anyone is going to be in that area and shopping at KQ, let me know and we can make a shopping date. That would be fun! I'm going to try to limit my fabric shopping this year, but I'll be sure to share my trip with everyone, fabric or no fabric.

Happy Stitching!
