Hand Quilting

Hand QuiltingEver look at a quilt and marveled at the beautiful, decorative stitching that is top stitched throughout the quilt.  Today, a lot of this stitching can be done with fancy long arm quilt machines or even done with a special machine foot for free motion quilting. In the old day it was done by hand and can still be done by hand, especially if you don't have the proper equipment or sewing machine to do it.  Hand quilting was done for practical reasons, the biggest one is to hold the quilt sandwich together and to keep the batting from shifting around.  In theory, it seems easy enough to accomplish but it does require practice to really get the hang of it and to do it quickly.  I'll show you the tools of the trade for hand quilting and how to get off to a good start.
