This one does enlarge but the second one doesn't seem to want to.
This is the first that I have done of hand quilting. A few years ago I did take a class, one of only two classes that I have ever taken. The other one was to learn how to quilt by machine. I didn't have much luck with the hand quilting and I think the fact that the stencil was a bit complicated had a lot to do with it. It was a bit overwhelming. I was discouraged with it so for a long time I didn't even want to try it again but recently I have become interested in it again.
Not sure why when you click on it that it does not enlarge.
This time I chose much easier stencils to quilt. Well one of them is a bit difficult but I am doing OK on it. I am amazed at how quickly it has gone. I changed my needle three different times and thread three different times but now I think it is coming along. I am using a variegated thread that is a bit dark but I wanted to be able to see what I was doing. I would love to do a small white whole cloth quilt someday or to do some hand quilting on a small wall hanging. I am enjoying it and find it relaxing to do in the evening.
I know the stitches are a bit big but I hope they will get better with time and practice. I am also having problems with the knot at the end of the quilting. Can't seem to get it right. Starting is no problem but the end is not.
Guess I will get the hang of that too, I hope.
