This pouch work great for taking small stitching projects on the road. Working on these little gifts for some special people. I’ll have to share them when I’ve finished. They are too easy and cute!
I am still plugging along on my Twinkle quilt. It’s been languishing as I finished up several big projects. I just couldn’t decide how to quilt it. I wanted it done now, but didn’t want to machine quilt dark thread over the light stars. How do you handle that, when you are working with highly contrasting fabrics? Or do you just plan differently?
Well last night, I decided to just jump in and hand quilt it. I’ve no other hand quilting projects going on, so why not?
If it wasn’t for using Warm and Natural batting, Kona cotton, and some fabric I had left from my grandson’s quilt, eons ago, I’d be done already! The Kona is a tight weave, then add Warm and Natural which is rustic, and irregular, and the backing feels too thick to be quilting fabric, though it is. I have finally gotten it through my thick head that hand quilting speed is all about the materials used. Quilters Dream, for me, from here on out!! It really does make quilting a dream. Along with a fresh needle.
