    Quilt has been bound and 31 patches have now been hand sewn to the quilt. I am currently in the process of hand quilting each one.... then I will be finished!

      This is really amazing! Isn't it very difficult to hand quilt through the patches?

      Thanks to each of you!

      Ann, not nearly as hard as I thought it would be... except for when the patch covers two joined sections of the first layer... like the left side of the red patch above... then it gets tough!

      Love the combination of hand and machine stitching - the texture is wonderful!

      Love this!!! Are you just doing the hand quilting with regular thread?? It looks thicker than that. I love the effect it gives, though!

      Thanks to both of you!

      iwishmynamewasmarsha.... I am using Sulky's "Premium Egyptian Cotton" thread, in both the 12 and the 30 wt. (whatever I happen to have on hand, and I don't mind using both in the same quilt, in fact I like the variation). Also, I double the thread over so that I am sewing with two threads.

      Thanks for answering! I'll have to look for some of that thread, or something similar- this is inspiring me so much!! I just saw the finished quilt on your blog, and it looks amazing!
