The quilt above is a another mini I am working on. I had 2 of the panels quilted in bigstitch (my new fav) but I didn`t like it at all and so I ripped the stitches out and went with good ol`hand quilting, but I am using a black quilting thread. As you can see these are still scraps from my pie in the sky (pattern by Kim Diehl quilt. You can see Rose Marie`s version and my version
I am so glad I tried it on here first cause I was going to do this to my quilt! now I have decided that it will be done as regular hand quilting with my little betweens needle and my trusty YLI Quilting thread. (this is almost good advise to make a small quilt to see if you will like the quilting on your big quilt ;-))
I want to thank Karen Goad shekeeps me in stitches due to her productivity she is always quilting, I admire her stitches on the screen. I want to touch them, the only way to do that is to make my own and touch them. It really feels good to be quilting by hand more and more. I see how quickly she is able to get her big quilts quilted and it really does show initiative that I can get them done quickly and beautifully like that too!
