    nice – y’all quilt fast – I never get done with anything too fast because I put a lot of quilting in it. I need to get the baby quilt I have done in the mail to the magazine that was collecting them also.

  6. Barb says:

    Corey, your (and your mom’s) quilting is perfect! I love the hand stitches – they show off your lovely fabrics and pattern so well. You are inspiring me to learn to quilt by hand!

    Your quilting gives so much texture and style to the quilt. Good job! I used to hand quilt with number 11 needles but gave it up years ago. I think I am going to get some Perle Cotton and embrace this fresh way of quilting. Super, super, nice quilt! Toni

    Gorgeous!! Your stitches are so tiny and perfect! I just finished my first hand-quilted project, and my stitches were big, uneven, and my fingers hurt. I guess I need more practice! 🙂

    Just love it. Really super gorgeous.

  23. Jessica C says:

    I absolutely love how this turned out.

  24. So Corey, I just posted my FMF fancy quilt top and wondered about hand quilting, big stitch of course. I was planning on using ecru but now that I have seen your brown, I think that would be wonderful especially since my “connector” beads are brown. I know you looked at it on flickr. What do YOU think of brown? I love the looks of it on your quilt! And how lucky that you can quilt with your mom!

  25. kristin says:

    Oh, the hand-quilting really makes everything pop. How beautiful!

  26. Alisa says:

    It’s beautiful! That’s pretty quick to have it all quilted up. How big are your stitches? Just cause I’m curious…

  27. Carol says:

    Love your quilt — it’s so bright and happy looking!

  28. LOVE the quilt, and the hand quilting too :o)
    Happy sewing,

  29. madame samm says:

    This is both did a great job…I use Finca and Presencia threads…they are heavenly to use…and I must admit the cotton one…is what I am using now…it glides….I just purchased threads through Janes finally someone who had all the colors I needed….I am certainly going to rethink colors next time I am quilting my next quilt…you sew inspired me…

  30. Tracy says:

    Wow, I’m speechless! Stunning!

  31. *Simply* beautiful!!

  32. LisaAnn says:

    I love your quilting! Very beautiful. It reminds me of sashiko, the Japanese stitching. So nice!

  33. maree says:

  35. Suzanne says:

    Beautiful hand quilting! I have a lot of work still to do on my modern relief quilt as well, but I think it will be machine quilted!

  36. elsa says:

    this is a really lovely, fresh quilt and love the stitching! great job!

  37. Beautiful! How lucky are you to have such a mom!!!

  38. I LOVE this quilt! The colors look great against the white in the first photo. I think hand quilting was the perfect decision. It looks like the squares are perforated (like coupons) and are ready to be punched out of the “paper” (fabric).

  39. I love the bright white with the bright colors. It’s such a beautiful quilt.

  40. Leslie Blanchard says:

    What is the link to the free pattern? Your quilt turned out great! Love the stitching.

  41. traceyjay says:

  42. Your hand quilting is beautiful, nice even stitches! I like the dark thread, too, this looks great!

  43. Marisa says:

    What a beautiful quilt!

  44. beautiful job. You have inspired me to try the pearl cotton for my next hand quilting project. Now I just need to buy some.

  45. Great choice! I’m amazed at how speedy you guys are!

  46. charlotte says:

    Found the pearl cotton today at my local shop. Yay!! Can’t wait to try this.

  47. Rebecca says:

    This is an amazing quilt! You and your mom are fantastic quilters!

  48. Wow…love these photographs of your beautiful hand quilting! Very inspiring!

  49. Karen says:

    Your quilt is beautiful! Love that hand quilting. I assume that is a hand quilting frame in the top pic…can you tell us more about it? Is it a custom design? I’ve never seen one before.

    • Corey says:

      It is a quilt frame–it’s my mom’s–I don’t have a lot of info. about it. She actually has two different quilt frames and they are different from each other. The larger one I believe she said her Grandpa made if I remember correctly but I am not sure about the smaller one that we were using.

    it’s be-au-ti-ful!!!!

  51. Lei B. says:

    Your quilt is just beautiful. I love the way you hand quilted it. I have been afraid to jump to machine or hand quilting a top for the longest time, but after seeing this quilt it makes me realize it will be OK no matter how I finish my top. Your blog is such an inspiration. Thank you so much!

  52. Mary says:

    I browse the net quite a bit and it’s becoming rare when I’m THRILLED by a new quilt! This one of them, great, simple, stunning! Congratulations!!
