The Big Stitch
Have read some talk and even a new book on the Big Stitch. I love it, especially working by hand on prim quilts, easier, faster and the look of hand did prim. I made this quilt back in 2007, A Penny Saved, you all have probably already seen it once, but I did use the big stitch to hand quilt it, barely shows on the closeup since I used a black crochet cotton thread. I now prefer the perle cottons for wool and linen or crochet cotton for cotton prim items. I want you to know I hand appliqued all those circles. The quilt is all Moda cotton fabrics.
