    Thanks for the …
    Thanks for the video. I too think hand quilting is a nicer look than machine quilting. I have not ever heard of using pearl cotton. I love this idea and will try it soon! I’m knitting socks right now.

    Gee thanks Sarah, …
    Gee thanks Sarah, I have taken up quilting again the last quilt that I put together was when I was a teenager but had never actually quilted a quit that I made. I always thought that the stitches had to be tiny and fine cotton used and I could never get them small. I feel as though you have given me permission to do my own thing with your method, thank you so much.

    I want to learn how to hand quilt and put it this way, I don’t even know how to thread a needle. My grandmother hand quilted and passed away before I could learn how to quilt by hand. Is there a difference between hand quilting and hand piecing? If yes, I would love becraftsy to show me how to hand piece a quilt as well. Thanks for listening.
