If there is anything, and I mean anything, you want to learn about quilting, I recommend you visit You Tube’s Sharon Schamber Network. Sharon is a Best of Show winner at the Houston Quilt Festival 2010 with her “Mystique.” This lady knows her stuff!
Mystique by Sharon Schamber
I am currently hand quilting my “Poinsettia Wreath” quilt.
Since I have only hand quilted using the utility (big) stitch with perle cotton thread, I needed a tutorial on how to hand quilt using no hoop and regular quilting thread. Sharon Schamber Network on You Tube to the rescue – Hoopless Hand Quilting.
Now I’m ready to tackle the outline quilting around the appliqued motifs. I first machine quilted in the ditch around each block square and along each side of the green stems. I'm hoping I don't get myself too tangled up hand quilting since I pin-basted instead of thread basted.
Anyway, wish me luck.
