I have missed hand quilting SO much! I didn’t realize it until this weekend, when I spent some time stitching on my “Circles” quilt. Last night was perfect. It was cold and rainy outside, the wind was blowing hard, and I was snuggled under this quilt, just a stitching away. Perfect! Even though I bought a machine and frame for machine quilting this past summer, I will always continue hand quilting. I find it so relaxing and peaceful. I used to quilt on a frame that my husband made, but I find sitting in a comfy chair with a quilting hoop works better as I’m aging. It doesn’t hurt my neck and back so much, and it’s more portable.
