This is a great way to hold all those layers together without doing any quilting – and don’t the varigated threads look great too.
Tying quilts rather than quilting them is very traditional and might seem easy but like everything care is needed. Paula has taken the hand tying idea and translated it into a modern machine technique and used some of the wonderful varigated threads we are now blessed with.
Paula uses a standard satin stitch which makes this technique possible for everyone BUT if you have one of the newer machines you should try using some of the other stitches that are available – particularly if you are able to programme just a single motif; try using a heart or a flower to start with – wouldn’t they look particularly good in the centre of squares again such as log cabin but also Courthouse Steps.
AND you could try some metallic threads maybe to give extra bling!
Paula Doyle is an author, award winning quilter and tutor. One of the things she likes best is designing complex looking quilts which are made using simplified techniques to make them achievable and enjoyable to every quilter.
