  1. This is beautiful! I'd love to make a clamshell quilt - it's on my long To Do list. Keep plugging away - that's what I keep telling myself with my hand quilting projects. It is so worth the extra time.

  9. Wow, this is really special. This is a pattern I haven't dared tackle, but I love the look. And not only are you hand quilting it, but the echo line of quilting really adds an extra zing! Great job. You should be proud. : )

  22. The quilting is lovely. Did you start from the bottom and work your way up? I have always heard that quilting should be started in the middle.... I'm about to start a Baptist Fan and was trying to figure out how I could start in the middle. Maybe I don't have to?
