Hand quilters often think differently than other quilters. When you're a hand quilter, you focus more on the quilting stitch; how it will look, what design will best fit an area, how to achieve that puckered, even stitch.
Hand quilters, join in on this discussion and tell us what you like... and what you don't like about the quilting process!
I'll start the ball rolling!
When I design a quilt, I like wide open spaces without seams so that I have a lot of room to showcase (hand quilting) stitches.
I like fabrics that aren't so busy that the design hides my quilting stitches in a shroud of print. Solid, textural blenders are perfect for hand quilting!
I really don't like quilting through a lot of thick seams.
The basting process is a real drag. I baste with little brass pins, and then when I quilt, the thread always gets caught on the pins. UGH.
