Hand Quilting

I have finally started some hand quilting projects again, I'm a happy camper.  There is nothing like it :).  Here's my Civil War wallhanging, just really getting started.
Even though outlining applique is not my favorite part, it's still fun.
 
Then I got sidetracked.  I have just received our Guild's opportunity quilt back from the quilter's.  It is exactly what I had hoped for.  My friend Sheree did a wonderful job.
I am now starting the hand quilting part.  My job is to quilt the green sashing borders. The center medallion and the vine border will also be hand quilted.  I'm beyond excited about the way it's turned out.
Here's a close up of some of the borders.
There are 5 green sashing borders.  I've got one down (the smallest one) but having so much fun re-visiting all these great Edyta Sitar fabrics.
Today I'm leaving to head west.  I have been asked to teach a workshop for the Sew Happy Quilters Guild in Morgan City, LA on Friday and to present a lecture and trunk show for the GSQA quarterly meeting on Sat.  That's Gulf States Quilting Association (FL,AL,MS,LA) for those of you wondering.  I'm very excited, all packed and ready to go.  I've got my camera, so I'll share when I get back.
Have a great day,
Karen

Very interesting to see you combining machine and hand quilting - so nice to have the look of hand quilting in there, but getting it done that much quicker! Clever girl :)

Your CW quilt is coming along nicely! Do you use a hoop when you quilt? The Guild quilt looks wonderful too. I wish I could come to your trunk show! I would love to see your quilts in person.
