About Me
Love to quilt entirely by hand - piecing and quilting, although I do some machine piecing on occasion. I prefer scrap quilts and reproducing antique quilts. I also love to garden, veggies and flowers, and to read. To bad I have to work as there are many more things I would rather be doing every day!
Hobbies and Interests
hand quilting, gardening
My pets are awesome!

Hand quilting little quilts

Posted on March 4, 2009 at 8:27pm 4 Comments

Nana asked about what hoop I use to hand quilt. I have multiple frames/hoops for my quilting from my great-grandmothers large frames that hang from the ceiling (not that I have them hanging now - I don't have room!) to small round wooden hoops. Currently my favorite for hand quilting my little quilts is an 8" Q-Snap frame. I find it allows me to adjust the tension well and because it is square I can work into the corners.

I just discovered Intown Quilters in Decatur, GA -- LOVE that place! Was able to find missing colors for my 'mountain' project.

I understand about your templates. I guess it would definitely be a pattern that you would hand piece since there would be some crazy seams. I will have to give it a try. I like it better than the updated version where a triangle gets added to the corner of two of the squares and you have four seams in the center block. Thanks

Yup, it's official - you're certifiable! Glad you admitted it before I had to break it to you :)

I'm afraid to ask, but what size hexagons are you using for your Instant Insanity project?

You did that quilt by hand? It's very special. I would never finish if I did it by hand. I also like the gardening with flowers, not into the veggies......
Did that growing up and that was enough!
Have a nice weekend!
