After a slow start on hand quilting the Dancing Plus quilt top this week, I think I'm on the right track.
I've never used a hoop for hand quilting before, but on this quilt, things weren't going well, and I had to rip out some rows of stitching. So I went and bought a 14 inch hoop and changed my stitching design idea.
The background of this quilt is pretty busy, so it's hard to show the quilting,
but I am stitching an X through the plusses and a horizontal line through the rectangles.
I've had to do some thinking and planning to figure which direction to go so that I don't have too many stops and starts. Not sure you can even tell, but I'm lightly marking the quilting lines with a Frixion pen.
Ready to go for some slow stitching on this Sunday!
