Hand Work

I really enjoy quilting with my long arm machine.  It's quick and I am learning a lot about new designs.  Enjoying the process of learning new pantographs and experimenting with placement and design. But, on the other hand, there is a lot to be said for hand quilting.  I love doing it!  It takes longer to finish a project, but the results are so worth the time and effort.  
Currently, I have been inspired by redwork, and hand embroidery as well, so I wanted to do a wall quilt that would be hand worked in embroidery and then hand quilted.  
Here is a peek at what I decided to do

The blue marks will disappear when water is applied!

I'm very pleased with the way it's going so far.  I will post pictures of the finished project later. 

Thanks for visiting and as my daughter, Laura, would say:  Hope your day is just peachy!
