Hand vs. machine quilting

June 8, 2011

It’s been a long time since I hand quilted anything. When I recently made a small wall quilt. I thought it would be easier to hand quilt around the applique, and so I began. Boy was I wrong. I am no longer able to make those tiny even stitches I used to do. It’s looking terrible! Time to tear out and begin again, this time with the machine. Does anyone else have this problem?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I guess the photos can’t really capture the stitches.  But they need to come out. I’ve never picked out hand quilting stitches before. Oh boy!!!
