    Who Hand Quilts

    Big stitch or regular quilting. What kind of quilting thread do you use? What kind of needles?

    I'm not very good at hand quilting. I've done a bit of both. My regular stitching is a bit uneven and I am having trouble finding the right needles to make the big stitch-type quilting work with the perle cotton threads.
    I tend to stick with the machine for quilting for the most part.

      I do regular hand quilting but only because I haven't found the time yet to try big stitch. I really want to try that out!
      for my regular I use quilting needles by CLover and handquilting waxed thread by gutermann. So far I haven't ventured out of it
      But I also machine quilt quite a lot

        I have done quite a bit of regular hand quilting, biggest project was a queen sized hand applique sampler for my son and DIL. Not my favorite part of "quilting" in the broader sense of the word.

        I have never tried big stitch but I might do it on a small project to see if I can get inspired. I do like the look of it and if I can get it right it would fit with the feel of several projects I am working on. Need to do some research.

        I, too, tend to stick to the machine now that my work doesn't look horrible.

          I hand quilt and have done some machine quilting. I use quilting needles and thread that is made for hand quilting. Not very exciting.
          I have watched a friend do Big Stitch, but have never tried it.
