Big Stitch Hand Quilting

3 Aug

The air conditioning is on so I thought I would get out some hand quilting and sit and quilt a bit. With the air on, it’s not too hot with the quilt on my lap. I have a round hoop and a very long stand, but I doing big stitch quilting and when I do that, I don’t hoop it.

The background fill is dense. I like the primitive look of the big stitches in the variegated thread. I don’t have a callous built up yet, so I can only work on this in moderation.

Any chance I’ll stick with it long enough to have it finished by Christmas this year? Maybe, we will see…
