Sweet Dreams Last Night!

After many months of sitting at my quilt frame, my quilt is finished and on my bed! 
I am in love with it as I am with all quilts that I quilt by hand.

 I finished the 'big stitching' on Friday morning and by yesterday morning the binding was on! Here is just a small look at the back of it.

I thought I would show the size of needle I use for big stitching.

The big one is a 'big stitch' needle and the small one is my regular quilting needle. I think the quilting needle is a size 10 because it was a bit easier to thread but I do use both size 10 and 11 for regular hand quilting. Now the hard part will be trying to get used to a small needle and a small stitch again.

So I am back to more time in front of my sewing machine. I think it may have missed me a bit!

Happy Stitching!


  1. What a sense of accomplishment! That is a big quilt too!! Woo-hoo!!

  2. Did you really quilt this whole quilt by hand? That is an amazing job!
