    Finally finished hand quilting a double knit quilt. the top was given to me last year and I put it together and use double knit material on the back. Quilted it so the back stitching looked like the front and I stenciled flowers in the corners of the squares and hand quilted the border using a stencil with pounce powder. Double knit was easy to work with for hand stitching. Top of the quilt was hand sewn by a friend of my family and asked me if I would like to have it and finish it. It really came out nicely. Use double knit material on the back.

    Oooh, good job, it looks so neat and fresh, you did a great job. My MIL made a lot of double knit quilts, they are so soft and warm.

    Did you use a hoop to hand quilt?

    I was afraid that the hoop would make the fabric stretch but that's how I would probably do it. Thanks.

    You did a great job. That looks so professional, maybe you are an expert. You did great anyway. I love it.

    Oh that is just too lovely! I can see how knit fabric would be easy to work with too. You sure did a fine job on the quilting and I just love the colors!
