Playing Catch-Up - A Centerpiece

I won't yet tell you where I am...giving those who are interested a chance to register a guess.

This past April, I took a hand quilting class at City Quilter (a fav spot). In order to get ready for the class I prepared a small centerpiece using a red, white and blue Moda honey bun and some remnant red fabric.

It seems I suck at hand quilting so it will take some time for this to be completed. It was fun nonetheless...

I love to change up one square into something unexpected...a little eye-candy. I hope it doesn't throw off the pattern. ~ksp

Hand quilting is just a matter of practice. I have one GF who uses the stab method and gets great results. Just try for consistency, not teeny tiny stitches first. O and use flannel not batting -- it helps.
