A WIP revisted....

This is a table topper that I started about 4 years ago.
Heck I probably blogged it when I finished the applique flowers.

I can't remember for sure.
I do believe it is a Cottonway pattern though.
I have been buying Cottonway patterns for EVER.
Anyhow, why blog it now?
well it's been in my to-be-quilted pile for 3 years at least.
I was looking for another project this last weekend and found it in the pile, already layered and pinned.
I was going to quilt it at one time...obviously.
I set it on my cutting table next to my hand stitching bag.
That's when a light bulb went off...
Use PEARL COTTON!
So I decided to hand quilt it in size 8 Pearl Cotton....
I will show you the progress as I make some.
{p.s. I get distracted easily with quilting...
again that's probably extremely obvious}

Would you share some tips on hand quilting? I've never tried it but have a couple of smaller projects that I think would look better hand quilted.
