Hand Quilting my Hand Pieced QAL Quilt



I've been working on hand quilting my hand pieced quilt from our Hand Pieced QAL.

Around the outside of the quilt in the large areas of background fabric, I've done some big stitch quilting about one inch apart in a white thread.  Inside each of the blocks, I have planed to outline each of the color patches with some more big stitch quilting.


I may go back and outline the white patches too - haven't yet decided.

I am taking this process slow and enjoying every minute.  You can tell where I've still got work to do based on where the pins still are!


I am using Sulky Petites (affiliate link) for the thread.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  1. It has a beautiful look Patty. I imagine that when I finish mine, it will take me the rest of the year to hand quilt it - lol!

  3. Your quilt is very pretty. Years ago I hand pieced a rail fence quilt. I got a lot of pleasure from it. There are times still I like to sit down with a needle and thread instead of a machine.
