Hand Quilting Again

I started hand quilting the tropical flowers tonight.  I am outlining the applique and doing diagonal lines in the background.  It's nothing fancy, but it's a lot of stitches.  It will take a few days to get good calluses.  


  1. my calluses never seem to build up - just a lot of pricked fingertips!!

    1. Mine do, but it takes a couple weeks. I have to check out more thimble styles, I've never found one that fits very well, so I just don't use one, but I should. It would limit the amount of blood on the fabric, LOL.
