This week I had some goodies arrive in the post, I’ve been waiting for these so that I can start my Haptic Lab world map quilt. I’ve done a bit of hand quilting before but made it up as I went along. This is a big project so I did some research before starting.
I watched Sarah Fielke’s Hand Quilting with Perle Cotton tutorial and bought a thimble, needles and a quilting hoop as advised.
The quilting hoop is 1″ deep so at least twice the depth of an embroidery hoop, I’m hoping it will be great asset. I bought a metre of Kona Snow for the top of the quilt and a metre of Kona Torch for the back, I bought it from Plush Addict when they had 20% off Kona last weekend.
I’ve basted the layers together and hope to make a start this week! It might even be this afternoon as I’ve run out of bobbin thread for my Welsh Blanket quilt and can’t get any more until tomorrow.
