I used to do a lot of hand quilting, but haven’t done so in many years. Until this week. I started working on my antique top. This is how far I have gotten.
My quilting stinks, but I am forging ahead anyway. I was asked about the batting i am using. I’ve had this around for years and do not know where I bought it. It is 100% cotton and it is made by Mountain Mist. I’m using John James Betweens in Size 10.
I was also asked about what I used for marking.
I used the silver pencil to mark the largest arc for each fan. I did this before basting so I could map out my plan. Just before quilting each fan, I line up the stencil and use the chalk to mark the smaller arcs. You can tell from my pictures above that I am not very exact.
I was also asked about the thread I used for basting. I just used whatever was already on the long arm. It gets removed anyway.
I’m keeping up with doing at least one hoop worth of quilting each day. My fingers are a bit sore!
