This one is hand quilted with perle cotton, bound and ready to go into the shoppe....
And the quilt for the wedding couple is finished and ready for a pretty ribbon. This one is machine quilted at 1/2 inch intervals and pick-stitched with perle cotton....
Flanders wanted to be in the picture-taking fun!
And finally, I have started preparing for a quilting demostration. A sample of the Cathedral Window block with the adorable Laurie Wisbrun - Urban Circus elephants! Love it!
Time to take "The Flanders" for a walk.....
Beauties!!! especially Flanders!ReplyDelete

YaY! Sam - I have been thinking about you!Absolutely, send me pics...just think about those cool days ahead and how handy that quilt will be. Whoo-hoo!ReplyDelete
Your quilts are fabulous. You have totally inspired me to try some hand quilting. I just need to figure out what a pick stitch is!ReplyDelete
just found you blog! Love love your STAR quilt!ReplyDelete
I just found your blog through Patch Andi. I randomly hit on one of her followers. I wanted to say I love your blog and look forward to reading about your creations.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. You are all so kind. Pick-stitching is a term I use to describe the casual hand-quilting with perle cotton. It is not as refined as traditional quilting with tiny beautiful stitches. I do use the same technique for pick-stitching as traditional quilting...only use an embroidery needle and I usually stack only a couple of stitches on my needle. Hope that helps!ReplyDelete
I just found your blog ... and I adore your wonky stars quilt - it´s bright and so beautiful with this handstitching! That makes me want to try ... on some little project though:)ReplyDelete
I was always afraid of handstitching because my stitches are not so tiny and not so even and regular - now THIS comment of yours helps definitly!
I love the picture of Flanders!ReplyDelete
Monika, I am so glad you found my blog! You should try the handstitching,but I warn you - it is addicting!!! Let me know how you like it.ReplyDelete
Hmmm I still do not know if I like it ... I tried on a little piece.. I think I´m struggling with not the right thread and the right needle for it ...ReplyDelete
(I mentioned you too:)
I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely instructions and photos. I followed them to the letter and my quilt will be stitched down tonight.ReplyDelete
