Hand Quilting

A friend ask me last week about hand quilting.  She had received a donated, unfinished quilt and needed it for the Art League fund raiser auction.  I do some had work, but have never completed a whole quilt.  I started looking about on line and found some beautiful examples of hand quilting in modern design form.

The time involved seems daunting to me to do a a large quilt, but I will included some hand stitching and quilting in some of my smaller projects.  It is great practice for all sewing skills and I use it in my teaching.  This summer in turning out to be full of inspiration and new up coming creative adventures. More ideas coming soon.

This beautiful detail is from Victoria at Silly BooDilly.  I have followed her work for a while and really love her color sense, and the hand quilting is equally amazing.  She has a beautiful collection of work quilts as well.

    Good afternoon Angela,
    My name is Christina Sutor and I work for ArtCenter Manatee. My co-worker and I visited the ACRE show in Jan of this year and we took your card. I am looking for new artists for our Gallery Boutique and I am wondering if you ever consign your items? How do I find your pricing. I went to your website from the card we took, but did not see anything there. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,
