With an autumn chill in the air, yesterday I decided to layer & baste this quilt top I completed last December with the intention of having it quilted to use on my bed this winter
Inspired by Carolyn's book on utility quilting, the decision was also made to use cotton perle 8 and big stitch quilting for this top. If you haven't seen this book I can highly recommend it as a wonderful resource for hand quilting.
It is full of good information & techniques with clear step by step diagrams, which is perfect for a hand quilting novice like me.
Once the threads were selected I was on my way......
I'm really enjoying this big stitch quilting & think it suits this top as it has so much colour & pattern.
