    I have also made the Quilt. I love the stitch and it can be a take along project as long as you prep the blocks first with the iron-on woven interfacing and drawing the design on the fabric. I did the stitching while on a road trip. I did take the class to learn the tips.. use a pillow under your work, also to pull the thread towards you, if you pull away it changes the look of your stitch.
    Beautiful Quilt!!!

    Spectacularly beautiful. There was just a posting over on the Main forum about twilling. I wasn't familiar with the stitch and had to google it. You definitely did the twilling stitch proud on this beauty and inspire me to try it myself! Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful work!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    What is the pillow for? Do you have any other tips you can share? I'm beginning twilling and still having issues getting my stitches to look consistent and 'pretty'.

    Kat2 thanks for posting the tips on twilling, I have gotten alot of questions about twilling and I did forget that to tell folks to pull your stitches toward you.. Did you quilt your own?

    For those that asked Twilling is a knotted embroidery stitch, it's very textural and is fairly easy to do. Is worked with either pearl cotton or embroidery floss. Would recommend learning with pearl cotton size 5, because you don't have to worry about and errant strand like on embroidery floss. Once you learn it you can change it up and mix it in with other stitches, use different numbers of strands for different looks. Vary the stitch length or width or both for even more different looks.

    see some directions here http://beetreedesigns.blogspot.com/2...-patterns.html directions are a PDF to print out. There is a sheet for left handers and right handers.

    happy twilling, Cyndi
