I love to hand quilt in addition to longarm quilting. I found this pattern in Quiltmaker Magazine and decided that I needed to do it. I also love to English Paper Piece, so this quilt is made entirely by hand. Hand pieced, hand quilted, hand sewn down binding. Okay, so I sewed the binding to the quilt top by machine, but that's all!
Quilted with wool batting so very fluffy, and light, and wonderful for hand quilting! I've even machine washed and dried this, and it didn't shrink up terribly. Just enough to make it wrinkly and extra warm.
I changed the pattern slightly from the original in the magazine. I already had 1.5 inch hexagons, so used those instead of the smaller size recommended. This gave me bigger blocks. Being quite tall, I also added rows to make it long enough for me to snuggle under. It's got to be long enough to wrap around my cold toes, and then tuck up and around your neck.
