  • Re: Do we all like hand work

    I love to do handwork, piecing, quilting, embroidery, whatever. However, I also do "crafts" by machine. The results are different, so my project determines my method. Once upon a time, I chose to do those kinds of sewing only by hand, feeling that hand-sewing produced a better and more personal...

  • Next?

    Well I'm at the point of having a couple of the cross for cancer survivors in the quilting stage, but nothing for piecing. This is how I do it, how about you? I keep at least one quilting project going most of the time. But that takes a little more dedication, gotta get a hoop tightened up, find...

  • Quilting Spoon

    Have any of you ever tried TJ's Quilting Spoon? I was told by a local quilt shop owner to try wrapping my thumbs with electrical tape to prevent sore fingers. I was just wondering how difficult it is to learn to use the spoon. Melisa

  • Re: Hand Quilting or Machine Quilting?

    I'm a new member of this group. I have to admit that I can't wait to finish piecing a quilt top together so that I can sit down and start hand quilting. I have only had 2 quilts machine quilted. The first one was an oversized queen bed quilt. I wanted it finished quickly and I admit I was a bit...

  • Favorite time to hand piece/quilting?

    Do you have a favorite time of the day you like to hand piece/quilting? Do you also like to multi-task such as "watch tv" or "listen to the radio" while your doing hand piecing/quilting? I have found that I usually do more at night although sometimes I will do that during the day...
