Working every project by hand takes time. Today and many yesterdays and many tomorrows I will be piecing 70" x 70" Celtic Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter. I love doing it, but today I needed a break. So I took this wall quilt down to clean. It's been washed, dried, pressed, and re-hung. IRISES is one of my first appliqué quilts...made in the mid 90's. Back then I machine quilted it...I didn't know how to hand quilt and guess I didn't know how to machine quilt either...it was awful. So a number of years ago, I took all the quilting out, re-did the border, re-did my first attempts at appliqué, hand quilted it, and put on the binding. Not perfect but much nicer.
