I finished the next 1/4 of the hand quilting on the Color Weave Medley log cabin quilt.
Normally I start quilting in the center but for this I am starting in the corners and working in to the center
I think it is looking great….and it is a very simple design so it makes for fast quilting. I often have people ask how I can quilt so fast. I think that practice is a big part of it, but I also attribute a lot of it to using a hoop (or frame) the hoop acts as additional hands, holding the quilt in the perfect position and tension so my hands are free to do the quilting…..I only have to hold the needle , I don’t need to keep readjusting how the quilt is held in my hands. Without a hoop or frame you can only get a very short segment of quilting done before you need to readjust the entire thing and change your hold on it so you can get the next little segment and so on. I could not do it without a hoop.
