If you enjoy hand quilting I should have mentioned it sooner, but today is Day 3 of a hand quilting blog hop over at Celebrate Hand Quilting. Personally, I think hand quilters are the nicest people. Always ready to share their thoughts and projects. I’ll be one of the stops on Sunday, Day 7. This is my first experience with being hopped to and I am looking forward to it! Go take a look see and see what inspiration awaits you!
I’m about half way through with the quilting on this quilt and my first experience with big stitch quilting. I’m using Prevencia perle cotton No16 in dark gray thread for the hand stitching. I do love this thread, heavy enough but not too heavy. The stitches on my needle are actually a little bigger than my actual ones. And I am surprised to like the look of it in general.
But I’m still not convinced I love it overall. It is so not me. Too lightweight and puffy…. Not enough quilting. I like it up close just fine, but when I stand back and look at it, it just doesn’t look as special as I was hoping for.
I also started pulling fabrics for yet another project.
Fondling fabrics is the sure cure for frequent cases of start~itis.
