"My Stitching Things" was the perfect project for practising my hand quilting! Initially I'd machine quilted around the edge of the stitchery panel, then decided to add a row of hand quilting a quarter inch in from the edge with a cream Valdani perle thread. Another Valdani perle thread was used for the rest of the hand quilting, this time I chose a variegated red perle thread to match the fabrics. My stitches are rather rustic, and I definitely need to practise more, and hope my sister, who is the Queen-of-Hand-Quilting will give me some lessons!
