Prompt #51

This week's prompt word is Hand. Back at #12, I doodled this hand, it is still one of my favourites so here it is again.

But I thought I should have something new to show for this prompt, so here is a look at my hand quilting.
I purchased one of those pre-printed panels a couple of years ago to learn to, and practice hand quilting. It is about 16"square and I did manage to get roughly 9 - 10 stitches per inch. Want to examine it closer? click on the photo.
Unfortunately I did this before I learned that batik is not the best fabric to use as a backing for this type of quilting.
I really enjoy the process though and hope to one day develop my own design to stitch.

Everyone is welcome to join in The Creative Prompt Project, it doesn't have to be a drawing/doodle, it can be a photograph, short story, poem......learn more by clicking on Clara the cow on my sidebar.

If that is practice hand quilting I'd say you have it mastered!! It looks fantastic!

Batik is about like tightly woven poly/cotton, when you don't have enough sense to know any better, and no other color cottons to match.
Mine was FULL SIZED + a bit.

Your had quilting is exquisite! You must be so pleased! And, yes, batiks are really hard on the fingers when you're stitching by hand -- avoid them like the plague!

Nice work....

I have one of those in a bag somewhere -- it's about half done and has about 1/8th as many stitches!
