I was inspired recently by a really interesting post by Jane over at Jane's thread and Treasures. She shows her unique ideas for echo quilting in empty spaces, and she said that your quilting is like your handwriting and is completely unique to you.
That made me think about the unique handwriting of my family members on my recipe cards. Each of these recipes is written by a family member that I can easily identify by their handwriting.
Handwriting is making your mark on paper - unique and special and precious.
Stitching is exactly the same! You are making your mark on fabric - using the threads, thimbles and needles you prefer, the hoop that fits for you (or no hoop!), and making the stitch length you are comfortable with. Each of us make stitches in our own creative way.
I wrote about my imperfect quilting stitches here and how I like to "eyeball" without marking the quilting lines, especially on my Journey quilt. I am filling in the larger blocks with a little bit of quilting and briefly considered the echo quilting idea, but went for something more loose and free.
I am just quilting wavy lines across the blocks, between the words and around the embroidery stitching.
What are you stitching today? There is no "right" or "wrong" way to stitch. Just do it however you intuitively feel is comfortable for you. And link up your blog post below and share your project with us.
