dipping my toes into hand quilting

First, I machine quilted diagonally 
across the patchwork section. (3.5 hrs)
Next, I free motion quilted some scriptures on the inner border.
(2 ish hours - still have one side to do)
Hand-quilting the pinwheels is next on the list.

As I suspected, I really enjoyed the stitching
and it was a nice break in a busy busy day.
That half a block took 30 minutes.
There are 40 pinwheels.
I'm gonna get faster.
I hope, I hope...

I'm also going to have to improve the back somehow...
