I think I would like to try a whole cloth quilt. Does it alway have trupunto in it. Where is a good source for a small project? I would like to do it by hand not machine. Does anyone have any suggestions.
I have googled... there isn't a lot out there. Thanks in advance. Quilter1234
the nicest ones i've ever seen have been put out by Benartex
here's a link to their website
thank you very much... this was a big help. I hope my local quilt shop will have one of the kits. That is probably the best place to start. Quilter1234
if your LQS doesn't have them i'm sure you can find a store online that has them.
i just noticed that they have 18x18 pillows.
that would be a great place to start - it would be inexpensive, easy to manage, and you'll be able to figure out if you enjoy it and want to work on a bigger project.
The Stencil Company has a selection of wholecloth, white and unbleached both!
I agree. I am headed to my quilt shop tomorrow to see what I can find. Quilter 1234
a whole cloth quilt is definetely on my things to do list!!! I want to hand quilt it too!
Right now I am doing a whole cloth Trapunto quilt on the machine. Well I started it, but had to put it on hold for the last 2 months til we were renoed and settled into the house. I hope to play again by next week. Although I think my first priority will be to get new curtains made for the living and dining room!! LOL
Go to eBay and put in wholecloths. There is somebody in NY that sells these for a decent amount of money. I have purchased two and have made several prior to my recent purchases.
I do not do tarpunto. I just quilt by hand. I continually amaze myself with my stitches... they get smaller the more I quilt. There is something very therapeutic in hand quilting.
I agree about hand sewing being theraputic, Anita.
I went to Bible school in Northfield Minnesota, 100 yrs ago.
Beautiful St. Olaf campus.
Thanks for the encouragement. Quilter1234
