Click on the button Celebrate Hand Quilting on the right side of my blog and it will take you to Caron's blog, there are links to other bloggers talking about why they love hand quilting.
When I first started Patchwork & Quilting I thought I had to learn to hand quilt as that is what drew me to quilts.
After trying and taking classes I could not use a Hoop or Thimbles and thought I could not hand quilt.
I still wanted too, so I tried to lap quilt and changed my technique that suited me and the rest is history. Having taught many hand quilting classes and seeing people taking up hand quilting is really great.
There is just something about it and while it takes much longer it sure makes a quilt even more special to me.
I will try and do a tutorial in the near future and show you how I hand quilt without a Hoop or Thimble.
You can see some of my hand quilted quilts a few posts ago, I will also take a picture of my Dresden Plate tomorrow and add it to this Post.
