Remember the huge lime green quilt that I posted earlier showing my first few images of hand quilting, I have decided to tackle this quilt again after a long break. I set up my card table in the corner of the bedroom and my daylight lamp. Hand quilting went into motion and gosh I felt such an amatuer again but I suppose with lots and lots of practise and without having to peep at the back too much,stitches will improve and I will get into the flow of it more. Im going to ask my partner if he can kindly take me to some quilting shops in this area of Leics. I do not know any quilting shops in this county at all!!! so I'm going to make some enquiries
I need to get some more leather thimbles, I do not get on with the metal ones and the tiny one that I do have keep slipping off unless I strap some micropore round it. Also it would be good to have a look at the quilting shops in this county and see if there is a quilting group in this area.
