I think I may have found some new wind to do some relaxing hand quilting this New Year. When I hand quilted previously (the little that I did) it was quite dreadful and painful. Mind you we're talking about big stitch or utility quilting, not those fine Amish quilting. I somehow did not get it ... the rocking motion ... until I saw this video.
Actually I've seen how Sarah Fielke quilted from a video that came with a magazine that Jess W gave me many moons ago but I don't think it was explained very well. After watching this FREE video all the lightbulbs started switching on! A rare occurrence I know. Prior to discovering this video and in pursuit of this elusive skill I initially enrolled in Craftsy's Hand Quilting class. I was quite disappointed. I have enrolled in many Craftsy classes and they were all very informative. So I requested for a refund in less than 24 hours from purchasing the course and to Craftsy's credit they gave me a refund promptly.
Pam Buda's QAL but I think the pieces are too small for my liking.
Elyte. Just love the pincushion. I am already using it.
Merilyn some lovely FQ's, one can never get enough of fabric and a cute Quilting sign which is now perched above my monitor telling me I should be quilting!
