Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

These are my husband’s hands, which I quilted into a white on white wall hanging.  The hands releasing the butterfly symbolizes freedom.

    That is so cool. I’m sure you saw my “doll clothes” from previous post, so you’ve got to know I’m so impressed! You are one multi-talented lady!

  2. That is beautiful. I am assuming hand-quilting? I do not have the patience for that, but have done a little machine quilting.

    • I hand quilt and machine piece. White on white whole cloth is fun because there are no seams to mess with–just draw and quilt.

      • I wrote “Hand-quilting”, how punny! LOL I didn’t notice that before. I had never thought of the ease of whole cloth. Maybe when I am older and too feeble for birding. 🙂 I had the hardest time sewing this winter, I kept walking away from the machine to watch the birds. Have you ever used a treadle machine? They are great fun. It’s what I use. Once I found a “bobbin tire”, and no longer had to hand wind bobbins, I could not ask for anything more.

    Beautiful. I have tried for years to write a song about my husband’s hands, and it always falls flat – I haven’t been able to do it yet. Perhaps I should take up quilting?

  4. I want to have a quilt like that… 😉 Your hands are always busy. 🙂
