Hand Quilting .... holy cow!

 LOL .... did that title of this post catch your attention?  Yes, I'm going to be doing a bit of hand quilting.  Only on small projects.

Like this small 24" x 24" wall hanging.  Yes, you can't see anything except for a glimpse of something beneath my stencils.  Why?  

This hanging is for an quilt exchange that I'm participating in with Humble Quilts.  The exchange is now closed with 70 swappers and I have already received the name of the person that this hanging will be going to.  Our work can be showed, but if the recipient reads my blog then it won't be a surprise when my package is opened.  For now, this is all that you will see.

It was fun to go through my Civil War fabrics and pick and choose what to use.  At the same time, it has come to my attention that there is a lot of that fabric in my stash.   Time to bring them out and use them up ..... in about 10 quilts ..... at least, if not more!  LOL

For the last week, nothing else was worked on except this project and it is now at the hand quilting stage.  It has to be mailed by April 30, so my time will be consumed finishing this hanging.

It has been quite some time since I participated in an exchange.  I wonder who will be sending me my quilt and what will it look like?  Oh, the anticipation!

Cherish your day, cherish your life!

Oh my, you are so good to have it all pieced. I am still in the planning stages. I can't wait to see all the fun little quilts. Lori is a sport to do this. I'm sure it is a lot of work. Have fun with the quilting!
