Tis the season to hand quilt!!!
Soon as fall approaches, It's easier to have a quilt in my lap! I've had this quilt basted for over a year, and it's been nagging me to start quilting it... I've decided to hand quilt it... I've been thinking about how to quilt it for ages, and since no big bright ideas have come forward, I decided to just jumping and make it up as I go.
The plan is 15 minutes in the morning, and 15 at night... I don't have a lot of spare time to sit and hand quilt, but I can easily do the 15 minutes twice a day... I love how my quilts feel when they are hand quilted... If only there was more time in the day...
I'm using Aurifil 12 wt. thread for some big stitch, embroidery, and decorative stitches to quilt it.
This weight is just slightly thinner then a perle #8. I love it... It does not twist up on me, and I can easily run the thread quickly through all the layers... This quilt has wool batting inside, so it will be fun to add some puffy texture, here and there... My thread set has 12 wt... They are a great price on my website... you won't find them for a better price...
I feel like someone is watching me...
Do you remember the old post about this quilt?
