Hand Quilting

Posted on 4 Comments

Sorry for the silence lately but I have been sewing, sewing, sewing, in preparation for Market – mostly on the machine, but a little by hand.  I love the look of hand-quilting and should do it more often. 

Last night I hand-quilted around this Desden block with 12 wt. thread.  I used a slightly darker green in the center and a vivid pink around the block itself.  I love how the pink contrasts with the green striped background.  I love it and wish I had used heavier thread, but time is of th essence and 12 wt. is what I had. 

Next I need to quilt this…

I am thinking purple or green in the center circle and maybe a light aqua around the Dresden.  Or maybe pale green.  Your thoughts?

Happy sewing!
