Talk to the Hand

back side

The working size is about 4'x3' and for someone who hasn't hand quilted a piece of any substantial size in a long while, I'm not doing too bad.  I'm using a size 11 quilting needle and can only rock 2 stitches at a time but it seems to be going faster than I recall me being able to do before.  This piece will not be densely quilted so I'm not freaking out over the time it will take.  I did go with the subdued thread colours but I can also see some machine stitches in a metallic in some spots being a highlight and compliment to the hand work.
