Are you intrigued by the notion of Big Stitch hand quilting and you are looking for a modern feel?
I created the following video tutorial as a support to the free pattern and article published in Canadian Quilter.
In this video I demonstrate how to use Big Stitch Hand Quilting and the four basic skills used to quilt by hand. You will learn how and why to make a quilter’s knot, the actual quilting stitch and starting and finishing a row of quilting.
Work along with me and practice the four basic steps. Once you have mastered CheckerBoard, try combining quilting with a walking foot and some Big Stitch Hand Quilting in my latest pattern ” Joy”
Materials list of supplies I use:
- Perle cotton. I prefer Valdani number 12.
- Chenille needles size 22 or 24;
- Finger pad available at a stationary store. I found them at Staples.
