    Twilling

    Does anyone on here do twilling (similar to candlewicking)? If so, where could I find a free pattern that would be simple to try and see if this is something we (our quilt guild) would enjoy learning.

    I've never heard of twilling, sorry. Have you tried googling "free twilling patterns"?

    I found this when I googled. maybe a good place to start? I see some instructions there. I would think you could try drawing a simple design yourself, like leaves or something.

    Interesting. I thought 'twilling' was taking 1/8" pieces of colored construction paper and rolling it up and gluing it on paper to make designs. I must have it mixed up with something else.

    It is a beautiful hand embroidery stitch. I saw a quilt with 12 blocks (each block different) that was all twilling and it was beautiful. Would love to just get a simple design and try it. The Stencil idea sounds good.

    Twilling Directions and Patterns

    I have printable twilling directions for left handed people or right handed people and a couple of free twilling patterns on my blog, beetreedesigns.blogspot.com and there are several you tube videos out there you can also search Palestrina stitch. Mary Corbet from Needle and Thread has a video on it on her web page.

    twilling? quilling? I think there is a poem in here somewhere. I learned something new today. Never heard of twilling, and now I know.

    It is very easy to do. What I usually do is just draw a simple line drawing and go from there. I've done some twilling (if you Google it, you might also look under the Palestrina stitch since twilling is mostly a midwestern term) on my son's graduation quilt that I'm working on. He wanted a physics equation so I wrote it out and did the stitch right over what I wrote.

    Twilling is an embroidery technique. An example can be found at: http://www.needlenthread.com/2011/06...on-quilts.html
