This is my FIRST quilt, the Broken Dishes pattern. I hung it on the clotheseline to photograph it but the wind was quite strong, and I didn't want to leave it for another day. It is still not finished. Someone suggested that I hand-quilt it. I didn't know about the various thicknesses of batting then and started quilting in the ditch, sort of stab-stitching it from each side. I have done about one quarter of it over about 4 or 5 years. A work in very slow progress.
