Hand Quilting: Heirloom Design & Technique »
Type of item: Home Decor
quilting cotton fabric, polyester batting, Fusions hand quilting thread
What was your inspiration?
Leah Day's Wholecloth hearts design which I had totally failed to machine quilt so I used the piece to practice Hand Quilting after watching Andi's class. This was largely quilted without a hoop because I am still trying to make that part of the process work successfully and battling to get the stitch right. It will become a cushion cover when I have finished it and I plan to keep working on it
What are you most proud of?
Hand drawing the feathers by eye after my original pattern tracing totally disappeared! And not giving up!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
