I don’t know how many of you get the online newsletter from the Fat Quarter Shop called the “Jolly Jabber” but there was an interview in it today from Jinny Beyer – to me the original queen of hand quilting and hand piecing. My inspiration from when I first began quilting.
The bit from the interview that stood out to me was this question and answer.
“Q: Tell me about your sewing machine. What kinds do you have and how many?
A: I have a very old Bernina that I use once a year for mending. All of my quilts are pieced and quilted by hand. That way, I'm able to get my sewing done in short snippets of time and while traveling. “
Just goes to show that you do not need a sewing machine to make a quilt – I just thought that was fun to see.
