For me, quilting is all about the texture that the quilting process adds to the quilt top. It is not a quilt until it is quilted. The quilting adds another layer of design to the quilt. I finally finished binding the “Card Tricks” quilt. After washing and drying the quilt, it has a beautiful texture. Compare the picture below to the one in my previous post. I still need to add the hanging sleeve and the label and I will be ready to hang in my mom’s apartment. My embroidery unit decided to stop talking to the sewing machine, so off to my dealer I went. I’ll have to wait to finish the label.
I also wanted to share some products that I love. First are the clips I use for holding the binding while hand stitching, Clover Wonder Clips. They come in packs of 10 or 50. They are a perfect shape to holding the binding. See picture below-I love them! I also love Hang It Dang It quilt hanging system for hanging my quilts. These rods are self balancing and super simple to use. They make hanging quilts a breeze. What are some of your favorite quilting products?
