I'm glad to be making progress on the hand quilting of this quilt. Like the big stitch with the black crochet thread. Goes very fast and is very forgiving since I don't use a hoop to hand quilt. I stopped using a hoop years ago when I started making prim quilts, not too worried about that perfect stitch and that taunt feel of the quilt. Once it's washed, the quilt will do it's own thing.
So I guess I'm a lap quilter, just lay the quilt on my lap, hope the pins hold in place enough, not too tight and quilt. I do machine quilt, but just seems if you're going to hand applique something that you want to really, really, look prim, you ought to hand quilt. Off course, I've done both, but now when I go back at look at my quilts, I like the ones that I did all by hand and that is the majority of them.
Up close you can lots of vintage Brannock and Patek fabrics. Looking forward to getting Jan's freebie Friday that she had, some strips and tiny cuts of all the fabric from their latest line, Together, suppose to be more like their older fabrics, hope so. Then I can stop hanging out on Ebay, hoping to score an OOP fabric of theirs that I don't have.
