I’ve been waiting to share some pictures with you of my completed Sew Scrappy Sampler! I did some big-stitch hand quilting with Aurifil!
Remember this picture of the finished top?
Well, I was busy earlier this year hand quilting it with big stitches… and Aurifil 12 wt. thread! I got to do a guest post over at the Aurifil Blog on the basics of hand quilting with their 12 wt thread.
You can check out the tutorial here.
When she thought I wasn’t looking she tried to steal my precious thread! ~ little thief! Who could blame her really… it’s pretty irresistible!
You can literally find any color Aurifil thread you need!
For most of the blocks I did some simple outline stitches so the piecing or applique can be the focal point.
The border is all straight stitching, and I outlined an occasional flower for fun.
Some of you have asked what the back of my quilts looks like when they are hand quilted so I thought I’d show a couple pictures…
Look how pretty and fun!
