  • Re: Hand Quilting

    [quote user="Barb S"] I have always wanted to try hand-quilting and I have a small lap frame which has never been used -- [/quote] Barb, I learned to hand quilt the first thing, then learned to pieces and all the rest.

  • Re: Hand Quilting

    I learned to hand quilt even before I learned to piece quilts, and it is still my first love; but it does take a long time --both to learn and to complete a quilt.
