Harrison Rose...



I did this quilt top "Harrison Rose" quite a number of years ago....it is time to finish this little baby, so I am going to have a bash at hand quilting in Perle thread...doing it this way I can have my stitches a bit bigger.......thanks Kerry the thread is perfect...(I purchased the thread from Cottage On The Hill)

  3. It is really beautifull.
    I am not doing good in my finishes at all. I have some minor problems with my leg ( a little infection) which keeps me from long times behind the computer.

  8. What a beautiful top. I enjoy quilting by hand using perle thread for a more rustic, casual look. I often use 'big' embroidery stitches too. I also like to quilt with conventional thread and smaller stitches, but can imagine how difficult that might be if my eyesight were not so good.
