Hand quilting is not a forgotten art. It is a fast, easy, and relaxing way to embellish a quilt and can be combined with machine quilting to accent a quilt in many ways.
At the first session, you will be introduced to the basics of hand quilting, the materials needed, how to baste, how to tie and set a knot, and the rocking stitch. If you have tried to hand quilt before and have questions, I can observe your stitch and give suggestions on how to improve it with proper body mechanics and tools. At the second session, I will cover variations of the rocking stitch, learn Big Stitch quilting how to mark your quilt, and we will have a practice session. At the end, let's count your stitches to see how you have improved. Are you "Accomplished", "Museum Quality", or "Smithsonian"?
