    This is my first hand quilting attempt and I am loving it. Doing the big stitch method, giving it a primitive look. The fabrics are posting much brighter than they are. Actual colors are more like a slate blue, brick red and cream.

    What are you using for thread? For that primitive look of bigger stiches I always use Candle Wicking yarn, curious what you use.

    I think this looks beautiful! I like it when hand stitching ages a quilt. Love to see it when completed.

    Yes, I was wondering the same thing.

    I use lots of different things including 10 wt. crochet thread, $5 from Walmart for a HUGE ball, with which I've just finished quilting a candlewicked quilt for a customer.

    Your stitches look nice and even, which is the goal to strive for. It'll be so pretty!!
