Slow Sunday Stitching

Today, I plan on finding time to hand quilt the border print on my 1800s reproduction quilt.

Before
(white threads are from basting)

It has been enjoyable stitching along the border print.  There is no marking to be done nor seam allowances to stitch through.  I just follow the design!

After

When both sides of the pattern are quilted, the end result is quickly gratifying.  A nice scalloped effect is simply created.  This is the first time I have used Quilters Dream Wool Batting.  It is easy to hand needle, lightweight, not bulky, yet shows dimension.

It always surprises me the effect that the actual stitching does to the look of a quilt as evidenced in the before and after photos.

May many others who link to and/or view Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching today also find a few moments to accomplish a bit of gratifying hand work.

  1. That's the second post today telling of the benefits of wool batting, so that's what I 'm going to buy for my next hand quilting project. Such a great idea to use a print in the border and follow the design for the quilting stitches.Thanks for sharing your project at Slow Sunday Stitching!
