    Re: Using hand & machine quilting on one project

    Jill, you are so very talented. Love your eye for color and the right stitches to go with the designs you put together. If Luscious and I ever re state our vows, I will give you PLENTY of notice. hehehe.
    How is uni going this term? I have thought of you daily. Is it crushing or boring?
    be blessed in all you do

    He he he - never again! That's the result of me not knowing what I was getting myself in to. It was only my third quilt and I only had 6 months to make it. If I'd known more about quilting I would never have attempted it.

    I made a quilt as a wedding present and I hand quilted motifs in the middle of some of the blocks. Then I stitched in the ditch with the machine to make it stand out. It came out really lovely.

    I did both hand and machine quilting on my Christmas table cloth. The middle of it was handquilted. I did that first, then I quilted the borders with the machine.

    I washed it since and the batting stayed in place.

    I think quilting is your artistic expression and whatever you feel in your heart is what you put in your work. If the flowers are your creative input and the quilting is the utilitarian part of the work . . . well, GO FOR IT.

    Others may have a different view, but I think you are the artist and what you do is the ART!

    Using hand & machine quilting on one project

    Has anyone tried using both kinds of quilting on a project? I'd love to do some intense flowers, but not on the whole quilt... thinking more of machine quilting the rest in diagonals with just the flowers done in close hand stitching.

    Is this is a faux pas or silly question? I hope not!
Working...
