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.
Quick and Easy
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!
How to stitch
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.
