Have you ever heard of Big Stitch Quilting? Someone on instagram saw a quilt that I'm in the midst of working on and suggested I google "Big Stitch Quilting" and so I did!
It's a hand quilting technique that uses big stitches and there are lots of tutorials (and here) all over the internet. There are books, online classes, and entire websites dedicated to the topic. I have to say, I've done lots of Big Stitch Quilting before, but I didn't realize it had a name.
I love the way the big stitches look:
Back in 2017 I took a class with Frances Holliday Alford (and blogged about it here). She uses a lot of this "Big Stitch Quilting" in her work -- although she never referred to it that way.
Back in 2011, I worked on some small intensely stitched quilt pieces, like this one:
This is a kind of stitching that I love doing and have done for years. I'm delighted to have a name for it.
Thanks for stopping by!
