Hand is a 4 letter word.

I am caught up with all 11 BOM's for April. Yahooooooooooooooooooooo!
The last 2 BOMS are all hand applique. When I first started doing the applique I didn't think I was going to like it. I LOVE IT! I am sad right now because I have nothing to hand sew. If I didn't already have 11 BOMS plus another project, I think I would take on another applique BOM. I even have a few picked out. This one is called "Affairs of the Heart". I will be doing 3 blocks a month. This should not have been the first quilt I did using hand applique. You can tell which blocks I did first and which I did last. I am hoping that the quilting will take away from all the errors. I still have to use gold embroidery thread to do some decorative stitches but I need to learn how to do it.

This is month 2 of the Vintage Valentine BOM. It had over 70 pieces.

GORGEOUS !!! AMAZING !!! Man, I wish my hand could do all than hand sewing, and what the heck are you talking about. I don't see any errors. Any quilt you think you don't like or want to get rid of...I know who you can give it too !!!!! I'd be happy to take them off your hands. You need to sell these....or better yet put them up on E-bay...ha,ha,ha...just kidding. Love ya

I especially like the Valentine block.... Sew Pretty!

But first, I want to learn the blanket stitch dance.
