Great information for hand quilting with embroidery thread such a Perle Cotton: love a quilt that's stitched with Perle Cotton.....oh my, the collective in-drawing of breath around the world as the "Quilt Police" flutter their eyes in disbelief that such a thing would even be allowed......Do what makes you happy, it's your quilt anyway. If you want to take huge stitches...DO IT....NO RULES!!!
Learn how to hand quilt with this tutorial. There's just nothing quite as special something that is hand quilted. I have two quilts that were made at quilting bees 75 to 100 years ago. The quilts are made out of old flour and feed sacks. These quilts were made with love, a few pricked fingers and lots of laughs by my Grandmother and her friends. You just can't replace a treasure like these!
