Big Stitch Quilting

I purchased this fun quilt top back in February. Since I finished quilting the last vintage top this weekend, I started thinking about doing this one next.

I’ve never done big stitch quilting with perle cotton, but I’m thinking of trying it out on this. I have this ball of vintage pearl cotton that I love.

Check out the price!

But this is all I have and I’m certain it isn’t enough. It may be too thick anyway. I’ve looked online and can’t seem to find any. Perhaps a solid color would be better on this busy top anyway. Looks like I will do a bit of shopping today. I plan to use this stencil, available from Fun with Barb.

First though, I’m off to Youtube to watch a few tutorials. Have a great day!

    Have fun. I like #5 and #8 size perle cotton. #5 is definitely a bit thicker but not unmanageable.
