Janet Wickell from about.com, and Mary Butler of the Empire Quilter’s Guild show us everything we need to know to get started hand quilting! From the first knot, to rocking the needle, and even what needles to by, Mary gives us her insights on what to expect when beginning a hand quilting project. As always, the key is to key those nice, even, and consistent stitches from beginning to end. This particular vein of quilting is a time honored tradition, and it may take a few tries to get comfortable with this method. Keep pushing through and working on your quilt! It will all be worth it in the end. Happy quilting, friends!
