Progress is being made on hand quilting this lovely Seven Sisters Top.
Once again, I’m using my fan stencil from Fun with Barb. I also decided to try out a new hand quilting thread.
For the most part, I like it. But I have come across too many of these bits for my taste.
I’ll finish with this thread before I make a final judgement. I picked this stand hoop up at a sale this summer. It looks to be a Hinterberg Homestead hoop that is no longer available. I figured for $7.50, it was worth trying. So far, I’m really liking it. I used to love using a floor frame and this is a little like that, but I’m able to rotate the hoop to quilt in different directions. I figure I need to do whatever I can to relieve stress on my shoulders, hands , and arms.
This is my new favorite batting for hand quilting. If you are goi g to spend the time to hand quilt, get a batting you love or you may never finish!
I’m so happy to be hand quilting again, even if it is slow going.my fingers have not gone numb even once since my surgery. My hand/wrist do get sore so I’m still trying to pace myself.
Have a great day!
