My finished hand quilting sampler

Here it is my finished hand quilted sampler for Nancy Chong's Hand Quilting class. I do not like white, whole cloth, quilts so I used watercolors with chalking to get a pastel look. It looks a lot better on my designing board than here.. My dh and sons just did not like the white either..they all asked me if I was putting something on it and I say no it is done..so they might like this better..at least it has some color in the middle. Now I can finished up some other quilts that I have to machine quilt, satin stitch, and also get to know my new machine..it is will be 2 months on Wednesday since I bought it..lots of hugs, Lorraine

Hi Lorraine! Good job on the hand quilting. I agree with your male relatives, it needs something more colorful in the middle or edges. Maybe more hearts that are the same fabric as the border?
