Hand Quilting - How to Hand Stitch a Quilt

Though some like to use a quilting sewing machine to piece together their quilts, many find hand stitching a quilt relaxing.

I have put together a page for beginners with a series of video tutorials to help you start and finish a quilt, or a smaller quilted item.

You can click here to go to the tutorial page.

If additional pages are added about quilting, you will find them all by clicking "Quilting" in the upper right margin.

I am Back to Share Some Hand Quilting Tips

I just looked to see when my last post was, October, it makes sense, that is the month that my dear brother was diagnosed with a brain tumor. As he was disabled, I was one of his guardians. Since that time we have gone through a difficult journey with him that ended June 29th with his home-going to heaven. We made many decisions for him, as he could not make his own, nor could we explain to him what was happening to him. But for as long as possible, right up to the final weeks when he slept most of the time, he smiled and laughed and kept his positive attitude. I miss him terribly.

In that time my husband also had a heart attack, but his life was saved, and he is doing well.

Now I am trying to get back to doing things I had set aside, and am excited about getting into the topic of quilting. I have something all laid out to share here, and will be working on it during the coming days.
