Quilting challange

I started the hand quilting on the museum piece. I am using pearl cotton. The challange was finding a needle with a big enough eye. I found one and it is pretty long. All the fabrics I used are batiks so they are a little tough getting the pearl cotton thru, but I love the results. I am starting to get a system going so the more I work on this the easier it will get. I had to figure out another way of securing the ends - a knot will not pull thru the batik.

You are very good at finding physically challenging projects!

Thanks for the observation! I never thought of my projects that way, but you are right! What was I thinking?!!!
