Hand quilting begins

My first hand pieced quilt top Berries and Bears by Cindy Blackberg finally comes to a finish and it's time for me to take on the hand quilting.

I have always admired quilts that have been made 100% by hand.  After attending Cindy Blackberg class back in February 2014 I was hooked on hand piecing and fell in love. 

Now it's time for the next step to quilt the top by hand too. 

Things I am learning really fast are:
1. Not as easy as it looks
2. Fingers get really raw and sore. 
3. Keep air down low if you are getting hot flashes 
4. Dogs can't wait till you are done to get under your quilt!!

Happy quilting, 
Christine
