You are welcome Kay.  I always hate to send out those kinds of reminders, but some times it just has to be done.  Thanks so much for understanding.

Kathy, good luck with your surgery - I hope all goes well. I've never pp'd by hand, but I did a throw for our sofa using leftover lightweight curtain fabric. It came out really well (I think) and it's easier to get the points to match/be sharp when you're doing it by hand. Many years ago I was going for my quilting certification from the Embroiderers Guild and made a Sunbonnet Sue by hand and I enjoyed that, too. As long as you take small stitches and backstitch every 3 or 4 stitches, your handmade quilt should last for years.

Kathy, I hope all goes well with your surgery.  I had a disc removed in May of 1999 and have never regretted doing that.  It took me about 3 months total to get well enough to go back to work.

I have never hand pieced a paper pieced project before, but I have done a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that way.  To be honest, it was a very easy way to do that block and I really enjoyed it. 

Just a gentle reminder that it is a copyright violation to copy a pattern to give to someone else unless you have designed the pattern yourself or you have express permission from the designer to do that so please don't offer to do that on this list.

When are you having your surgery Kathy?  I love to applique, so that's what I'd do.  haha   I've never put together a quilt by hand before. I've always used my machine.  I'd be scared to death the thing would fall apart.  I admire you so much for doing on like this.  Wow.  How big do you want this to be?  I have several PPings patterns I'd be happy to copy and share with you......

Haven't been here for a while.. back problems again and this time I'll have surgery.   I understand the recovery from a fusion is long but I'm thinking I'll start a PP project and work on it throughout.. my back surgery quilt.  It will be hand piecing but that's ok.. any ideas what I could use as far as a pattern?
