Can you believe I am doing three posts in one day? LOL I have not shared any sort of crafting in such a long time that I was afraid you would think this is no longer a quilting etc. blog. LOL I am working on some BOM blocks, just about caught up with my May blocks, but today I thought I would share a new to me way of quilting. It is called Big Stitch Quilting. I am quilting Birdie Stitches this way. I am using a Fons and Porter Utility quilting needle that I got at Joanns. It says #5 Embroidery on the package. I am using Perle cotton #8 ecru color. I just cut off a large length and go to town. I still make the knot and bury it inside the batting just like normal hand quilting.
Here is a closeup of one of the blocks and sashing.
I was so excited to win this Aurifil Sashiko Thread Collection a while back. Sorry I don't remember for sure where I won it. I know it had something to do with Pat Sloan and Quilting Bloggers.
