I have been teaching hand quilting this week. Joyce wanted to learn because her husband bought her an actual frame! That’s a first for me. Look how great those last few stitches look; she’s a natural…and a leftie. Very fun!
Rhey wanted to learn big stitch. Here are her first rows. I knew she was a ringer and sure enough, she pulled this out of her bag…
I found a #12 John James quilting needle and she tried out those big stitch tips. Traditional hand quilting and big stitch use the same rocking motion technique; we just switched up the thread and needle. Again, success! Nice pieced points too. 🙂
Beautiful stitches…love the hand quilted look. Great tip about the needle .
