Hand quilting continuation

Hurray for cooler evenings and a chance to get out my hand quilting. I am quilting the stars with 12 wt Aurifil thread 2915 and the background diamonds with 50 weight colour 2000. I find it difficult to make my starting knot with the heavier thread so I cut a piece double long and start […]
