Is done. Started in February 2010, finished applique in January 2011. Finished hand quilting it, got the binding on and a sleeve, yesterday 11-17-12. This is the third, no fourth quilt I have done by hand. I may do another. I use stab stitches instead of loading my needle. My stitches definitely improved as I went. I think I used about 350 yards of thread, wow. Now I have to wait a year to hang it up.
