    Here are some pictures about my personal way of handquilting. As you can see I don't use a thimble and I only do single stitches.

    What do you use to mark the lines to be quilted?

    You must use a frame? It cant seem to figure out how to do stitches when the fabric is streched in the frame...

    Isn't it painful to sew without a thimble? Nice work and beautiful quilting.

    How many times I wanted to ask you to do this but didn't want to bother you - thank you for reading my mind!

    On these pictures I quilt freehand without markings. When I mark I use watercolor pencils for dark fabrics and the method of needlemarking for lighter ones.

    I use a hoop on a floor stand for quilting and the tension of the quiltwork is not very high. I must be able to move the needle without too much pressure.

    No, it's not. Maybe you can see that I don't touch the needle with my middle finger.
