I have been quilting for a little over 10 years, lots of BOM's clubs. Last year my daughter and I both completed a mystery quilt from The Hen House in Charlotte. It was fun but now I have to quilt them.

Be proud of being a *NEW* quilter. Many times it's the new quilters who bring fresh ideas and help those who have been quilting for years see our love of quilting through new eyes! Your enthusiasm helps inspire us too! Welcome! (Gee, I'm in love with !!! this morning...I'll control my punctuation next post...lol).

I can't do a lot of hand sewing because I get carried away and sit for too long and my neck and back go nuts on me the next day. Isn't growing older fun!?

I don't do much hand sewing unless no other way. I'm getting some pains in my righ thumb so makes it harder so do all I can by machine!

I agree about practicing with the hand quilting. It's like any other handwork, when you first learn you will feel like all thumbs. But, with practice it gets better. It should eventually become enjoyable and relaxing. Don't be too hard on yourself at first either. Enjoy the process, and try not to go for 'perfection'.

Welcome quiltingsue! Glad to have you join our group and please feel free to add ideas, suggestions, and questions any time. I did some hand quilting and I found it awkward at first also. I had to keep practicing and eventually it got easier. I also found that trying different quilting frames and postiions helped me to find the best for me. I still find it easier to use an oval hand-held frame or one on a floor stand than it is to use a big frame. I make myself use the big adjustable frame from time to time so I will learn to adjust to it. LIke everything else, the more you practice the easier it gets...again, welcome to our group, it's nice to have you!

Hi fellow Michiganian quilters. I am from Clare and have been quilting for about seven years but still have alot to learn. I am trying to learn how to hand quilt but it is so awkward. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate them.
