A few days ago I reviewed handquilting in my two Quilting Bibles and yesterday I picked up some quilting thread, while quilting thread is not vital I decided that I wanted my first attempt to be as successful as possible. One of the two "bibles" showed quilting stitches that were a little less than perfect and referred to them as "primative quilting", keep that in mind when looking at the above photos. While the stitches are FAR from even in length and spacing I am happy with the look and I think it will go just great with the rest of the stuff in my home.
It's raining here again so I will probably be spending some more time in my sewing room, although I did see in an ad that Marden's Discount just recieved a shipment of batiks, hmmmmm will I be able to resist the temptation to see what they have? I know saw a quilt a while back that was made with batiks, it was beautiful, of course it would be a gift for some unknown recipient as it would not go well with my decor.
Hope you have a great day.
