my very first quilt was slow stitched. By slow stitching I mean all hand pieced and hand quilted. It took two years. My cat Shreddies helped me every step of the way.
Because Two years want enough slow stitching I mad another quilt that took a year and a half.
Recently I decided to add slow stitching to my latest quilt but in cross stitching form. I was inspired by the work of Chawne Kimber.
Also my Buddy Peter Byrne is participating in the slow down Phenomena.
Slow stitching is the perfect time to try out some new threads like Aurifils 12wt or Valdani's 8 weight they add texture that you can't get with regular thread.
I hope you give it a try.
I have only hand stitched my quilts. Machine quilted throws. I used floss and outlined a design using the same colour floss that was in the fabric.
Wow! As a newbie quilter, I am amazed at the talent I’ve seen. I’ve just selected fabric for a quilt to be gifted to my daughter and am planning on incorporating some hand stitching. Lots of practice first! Thanks for sharing.
