To make a long story short :roll: I am going to rip out a machine quilted quilt that was quilted not so well to be nice. I want to do shadow hand quilting around the hand needle turn applique. I seen an example of shadow quilting. How do you measure the rows of the hand quilting around the applique to make the rows of quilting even? It looks like the rows are about a half to an inch wide of hand quilting.
