Not all quilts need to have small, competition stitches to make them look wonderful.
Even in the taster of this video you get to enjoy a wide selection of lovely quilts both made by and also found by Carolyn. All of them have Big Stitch hand quilting used on them.
Utility quilting is perfect for today’s modern quilter as it is quick and easy. It’s a way of using thick thread and large stitches to finish your quilt. And being large stitches, it gets finished that much quicker!
In this workshop Carolyn shows you how to start the stitching, the stitches themselves and how to finish off. All three of these are important stages of the work.
Carolyn goes through the equipment needed – needles, threads, hoops, pins, and marking implements. She also talks about some of the pitfalls to avoid as well as her personal choices.
A wider variety of stitches are possible and you can in fact discover more in her book, Utility Quilting, which is available through the shop.
If you are interested in HAND variegated quilting thread Creative Quilting have a supply of various colours by The House of Embroidery which you can find on their website at www.creativequilting.co.uk
Carolyn is an accomplished quilt maker, teacher and author of several books and patterns. Carolyn has been sewing quilts for over 20 years and just loves using up scraps. She is constantly inspired by vintage quilt blocks she finds on her travels and she brings them up-to-date with modern construction techniques – stitch n’ flip and Quilting on the Go are two of her favourites.
