Now that the garden is producing nicely I need to be getting more productive with the quilting too. I thoroughly enjoyed my class at Symposium with Sheila Christensen and I think I have finally got the rocking motion. There were several hand quilters in the class and they seriously out produced us new comers to hand quilting but I think eventually we might give them a run for their money.
I am happy with what I did and the progress that I made and my stitches did become more even and smaller in size, although I am not wanting my stitches too small or to me that defeats the purpose of big stitch quilting - I want it to be an accent or feature where I use it. That is the plan at this stage anyway.
This is my sample from the class, although I have continued with the curved lines and have managed to get my stitches a little smaller but I think I will stop there.
Loved this technique, you do your stitching and then colour in with inks. Just like colouring in when we were kids.
