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)

That's a beauty of a quilt, Peg. Gorgeous. I'm interested in hearing how you feel about working with the Perle thread for quilting.

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.

Oh Peg this is so beautiful, of course you have to quilt it by hand.

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.

I absolutely love perle cotton for embroidery, and I have dozens of colors, but I haven't yet used it for quilting. Let us know how it goes!

Another lovely quilt.
