I always machine quilt but have been thinking about trying some hand quilting on smaller projects. However, I have no idea what to do! I have a few questions and hoped someone would be able to answer them for me.
1. When hand quilting, what stitch do you use? Does it matter what thread and size needle? Can you just hold the project in your lap or do you need a hoop? (the project in mind this time is crib size)
2. Is hand applique done in the hoop? What stitch is used for that?
I may have other questions later, I hope no one minds. I really would like to do this right.
