I hand quilted My Very First Quilt, because I decided that since I was learning this craft, I should learn it in a traditional way. I hand quilted my Modern Butterfly quilt as a take-along project. When I finished the top for this Starbright quilt, I decided that the quilt was so vibrant already that I wanted to make the quilting simple, and that hand quilting would be the way to go. But I held off starting this until my previous project was finished.
So in planning for our long weekend away at our shared ownership cottage in Haliburton, I made sure to get this quilt basted and ready to bring. I am using Aurifil 12 weight in 2915 (very light brass), for the stars, and Aurifil 50 weight in 2900 (light sand) for the low volume diamonds in between the stars.
I don’t quilt very fast, because I often stop to think, or talk to my husband, or check out Instagram for other #saturdaynightcraftalong posts. I’ll be working on this quilt for awhile yet, which is okay.
