Tiny House Quilt is finished!

I finished another one!  Here’s the Tiny House quilt all finished up.

Tiny House quiltSorry about the photo; can you tell I’ve been super busy lately?  I can’t even take the time to make sure my photo is straight.  I can’t believe I thought that the “Big Stitch” quilting was going to go faster.  Of course it took me about a month to find the right thread and needles so that was one of the hold-ups on this quilt.

quiltingI definitely recommend using a needle threader.  With the extra big threads, you want to go with as small a needle as you can and you’re gonna want a needle threader.  I didn’t have one and had to use a larger needle.  (I’m happy I can pass along my lessons learned from all my mistakes.)  Also, with the big needle and such a small quilt, I ditched the quilting hoop right away.  I just couldn’t get the needle to go in and out with the fabric too taut.  It seemed like this type of quilting takes just as long as regular hand quilting.

Tiny houses quiltI think I’m going to give this big stitch quilting another try on my bigger house quilt but this time I want to try an all over pattern like a fan or something.  I’ll keep you posted…
