It’s So Easy and Produces Beautiful Results!

Hand quilting is undeniably a favorite among quilters. We all seem to appreciate the softness it gives to the look and feel of a finished quilt that can’t be achieved with machine quilting (which is beautiful in it’s own way).

However, over time stiff hands, less-than-perfect eyesight, and waning patience can put hand quilting out of reach for many quilters.

Fortunately, big stitch hand quilting is doable by just about anyone. It lends that homey old-fashioned touch quilters love while going relatively quickly.

In the following video, Laurie Simpson from Minick and Simpson demonstrates her big stitch hand quilting technique. We love how fast it is and how good it looks without having to be perfect. In fact, imperfections make it even more charming.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
