Finished Big Stitching. Started Little Stitching.


I've finished the big stitching with navy perle #8  on all the baskets. I stitched 1/4 inch inside all the basket pieces.  I don't think that's enough quilting for my satisfaction so I'm now hand stitching in the ditch between blocks with regular quilting thread and stitches.   I didn't want to use big stitches anywhere else than the baskets.   I'm also thinking of doing regular hand quilting on the basket contents...maybe outline some of the food and flowers.   Maybe...

Doing hand work today?

The big stitching looks great! I agree that it could use some small stitching as well. Have fun today with your small stitching.

I recently started big stitching after small stitching for 25 years. I really love the look and it's so much faster.
