Hand quilting

Finally, I have my Tis The Season quilt in my hoop! And, I have managed to hand quilt 2 blocks so far. I really enjoy hand quilting and I use Petra thread which is very similar to Perle thread.


My favourite technique is the Thimble Lady way! If you click on the link, you will see a little demo.




I did a class a few years ago, and you received a plastic thimble at the time, but we were able to 'upgrade' to a silver one if we wanted at a great discount. Of course I couldn't say no! And, it is one of the best crafty things I have ever purchased! It makes things so much quicker. And, I totally love it!


Tomorrow, I am off on a Craft Shop Hop with some friends. Some ladies I am sure you will know. I am really looking forward to it. I must charge the camera ready......
