Before leaving to help my relative last week,
I prepared this quilt for a little hand work!
I machine quilted diagonal lines through each of the bigger squares.
Then I packed it up.
It was the perfect project to have along.
I chose a few different embroidery floss colors...
and just did a simple little stitch around each of the small squares.
I used three strands.
A little HAND STITCHING
goes a LONG way!!!
I THINK it adds SO MUCH!!!
LOVE the backing on this one!
It's all rolled up.
Ready to be given away!
Do you know as many
as I DO?????
The embroidery does add so much to it. I just love the yellow in a baby quilt.ReplyDelete
I love big-stitch quilting Beth. My new favorite!ReplyDelete
That little quilt is beautiful! :0)ReplyDelete
The embroidery, along with those cute owls, make this quilt really delightful. Some new mommy will treasure it.ReplyDelete
Very cute. Love the stitching you added. This quilt looks vintage and modern at the same time.ReplyDelete
Hi Beth, which batting do you use for hand quilting? thanks Frugal QueenReplyDelete
When hand quilting with these big stitches, I use whatever batting is handy. If I'm doing a more traditional hand quilting stitch with small needle and small stitch I use wool or a thin polyester batting.Delete
Thanks Beth, when I've tried had quilting Hobbs batting, I ca hardly get a needle through it.Delete
Such an inviting quilt! Love the hand stitching, and you are right, it does add a lot to the quilt!ReplyDelete
Beth - this is so cute! That hand-stitching just adds the right amount of love!ReplyDelete
Very pretty! It's good to know lots of expectant parents - the more quilting that needs to be done!ReplyDelete
The hand quilting was just the perfect finishing touch.ReplyDelete
