Learning hand quilting



This past week, I thought I'd give hand quilting a try.  Since I'm a total newbie (or noob as my son would say) I concentrated more on gettting my stitches even and less on making them smaller.  Once I did my full motif, I thought it would look better with an echo line of quilting, so added that.  This whole piece is about 24" square.  The photos that are close up show better color than the full on shot.  I'm not sure why it came out so pink.  I guess I'll have to upgrade my photography skills next. :)
