Hand quilting

I've learned some of the secrets about hand quilting today, and it's so much fun!
This is what I did today, on the class Hanne teached. It's a bit tricky to get the control of the tiny needles, but once you've managed to do, you just wanna go on and on and on... Addictive!!!
I am quilting with a silk thread in silver with a touch of blue. Look forward to wash the quilt when I'm done quilting, to see the result.

Happy sewing:o)

Wow, that looks great. I never handquilted before, maybe I should learn it too.

Det ble noen timer med håndquilting på meg også i går ettermiddag kveld - dette kan man bli hekta på...Sterver med å få jevne fine sting, men øvelse gjør vel mester får man tro. Gleder meg til å se duken din ferdig, den blir kjempefin!

Quilting for hånd er veldig koselig. Det er som sjokolande, først begynt på - kan ikke slutte :o) Har blitt fortalt at de som er virkelige hånd-quilte-eksperter, varmer opp hver gang de skal begynne å quilte på mesterverket. Det er sikkert noe i dette, ser selv at det tar noen minutter før en har bevegelsen i hånda. Lykke til !! Hilsen Lena

Beautiful quilting!! I can't wait to see the finished results! I also use the small needles...also bought a Roxanne's thimble and it sure helped my quilting, as well! Much easier on the wrists and hands!
Good luck with the rest of your project!

Vilken vacker kviltning! Du lyckas väldigt fint med att få jämna stygn - de där hemligheterna skulle jag också vilja veta!
