  • how to learn to hand quilt

    I'm new in this craft. I'm intrigued by hand quilting but don't know how to go about learning it. I'm reading every teaching book I get a hold of. Are online classes useful? Is it best to see first hand how it's done? Thanks!

  • Seeking advice re hand quilting log cabin quilt

    This is my 5th hand pieced quilt. All I have done in the past is 9-block quilts, outlining (hand quilting) the seams at a 1/4 inch. I don't want to take the easy way out on this quilt. I am not very artistically inclined (the pattern came from Eleanor Burns, Star Log Cabin Quilt), so I have no clue...

  • Hi, my name is Jolae Norman

    Hi, I'm Jolae. I am a novice quilter. When I started to learn I joined an org. here in Colorado. I got into a small group, I was hoping they would help me learn, but no one was interested in it. So, I kind of gave up. Well now I'm ready to start again. Will I be disappointed here as well ? Please...

  • Using embroidered blocks

    Hi! I have been machine quilting for several years and recently started hand quilting with a group from my church. Now I have volunteered to set together six embroidered blocks that have to be set together for the printed quilting design to work. However, I need the finished quilt to measure about 90...

  • Re: How can I figure out what to charge someone for hand quilting?

    I have heard of different ways to charge for hand quilting. Some charge by the quilt size, say 2-4 cents per inch. Others may charge by the number of yards of thread. Spools list the yards on the package, so the number of spools used can be calculated with the price per yard. The average price I've...

  • How can I figure out what to charge someone for hand quilting?

    I belong to a hand quilting group & a friend has asked us to hand quilt a quilt for her. This is the first time in 10 years that this has happened, as we normally just go around w/in our own group. The top, dating from the 1940's, is in pretty good condition (mostly hand-pieced by a deceased...

  • Should I use Aurifil Mako' NE 50/2 for hand quilting?

    Hi folks: I'm pretty new to quilting. I just did two pillows for my daughters to practice hand quilting. I'm now trying my hand at a quilted throw. I started hand quilting yesterday and just realized today this thread is lighter than what I used on the pillows. From what I read online, it doesn't...
