I have hand quilted only small projects so far. I don't have a favorite thread yet--frustratingly, I received a beautiful thread as a gift and found it to be lintless and smooth. Now I cannot remember what type it was. Grrr. So I guess I am open to anything, thread-wise.

Hello,your post is very meaningful.We do only have so many "quilting moments" in our lives.I do a lot of machine quilt projects,but always come back to doing some hand quilting it seems.Just something about doing it and looking at it and give it to others that is special! I do cross stitch,Hardanger and redwork.Use Aurifil threads,sometimes a hoop or the white square thing you use;sometimes I don't use a hoop at all if it is a small project with a firm fabric.

Thanks for sharing!

I am new to hand quilting, and I just completed a small baby bow tie quilt for my fifth grandson who was born in July! I used DMC floss (two strands) and outline quilted the blocks. I enjoy the entire quilt making process from picking the pattern to adding the label. I feel lucky that I enjoy all of the steps!

Oh that's sweet, too often I rush through to get a project done and don't feel connected (and am ambivalent about it when it does get done). I don't really hand stitch because I do embroidery and I get ENOUGH needle work there, but I've been considering doing a whole cloth quilt with pearl thread soon
