On Day 4 Quilting I hope you are enjoying all ‘behind the scenes’ quilt know-how and tips. Today I am bringing you more of what I love and more discounts. Great ideas for gifts today for the quilter who has everything.
Hand or Machine
On Day 4 Quilting are you hand or machine quilting today? I tend to do both. Even my machine made quilts are finished by hand with the binding stitched to the back by hand. It gives a good professional finish. Although hand stitching takes longer, I find I can relax with it in the evening, and it hardly seems like work.
Cathedral Windows Quilting
One of my favourite methods for hand stitching is Cathedral Windows. I love the rhythm of folding back and stitching in place. Apart from basic patchwork, this was how I got into quilting. Last year speaking at quilt shows, one lady was amused by how my samples were nearly all Cathedral Windows. I was speaking on my favourite design topic – colour but I had taken mostly samples of my Cathedral Window quilts.
Day 4 Quilting Discount is Kits
Day 4 Quilting Discount is on all my quilting kits. The kits can be found here. They include a 16 patch Cathedral Window kit, Brights Cathedral Window kit, Ice Quilt kit, Spring Quilt kit, Summer Quilt Kit, Autumn Quilt Kit and Winter Quilt kit.
