Hand Quilting

I was just reading Reflections with Erica in my latest copy of Down Under Quilts and I can certainly relate to what she is saying about having so many projects on the go and so many ideas spinning around in your head that you can’t focus on getting any of them finished!  Often I go to get my sewing out and get distracted by other pieces of fabric or half done quilts or bags and end up just sorting through them and day-dreaming!  And in the last week I’ve been pulling out all my fabrics working out what I can use for the Quilting Bee so I have all of those ideas crammed in there somewhere as well…….

So, one thought I have is to write down all of the WIP – but that will be a long list so maybe I’m too embarrassed to publish it on my blog!!??

Last week I did a class at Amitie learning how to hand quilt with Perle thread.  Although I love the traditional hand quilting and one day hope to learn that properly and do it on my Sampler and Tate Stars Quilts, for now I just don’t have the time.  BUT I LOVE hand quilting in this newly learnt quick and easy way!  I’ve practised a bit and have two quilts ready to do for Sewjourn but just realised tonight when thinking of my list of WIP that I can hand quilt the wall hanging we did at Christmas in July last year……who knows maybe it will even become my completed project for February (note my declarations at the start of this year).

    I’m going to quilt my first quilt with Perle thread. It seems like the perfect plan for me.
