Yesterday I spent the day at the Fergus Highland Games helping to hand quilt a beautiful butterfly quilt made by the Grand Quilt Guild. This is Virginia (owner of Undercover Quilts) and Mary who started the hand quilting on Saturday morning.
The butterfly blocks were made by the guild members and sewn into a quilt top for us to quilt today. Some of the blocks are appliqued, and some are pieced. All are beautiful!
Isn't this a neat little thread holder? it has a little peg for a thimble to sit on. Virginia was using the spoon underneath the quilt and I was just using the fingers on my left hand, which are quite tender after hours of quilting.
The batting on this quilt is a mid loft Quilters Dream Poly and it is very nice to hand quilt. Have you used this batting before? I've used the Quilters Dream Cotton before and this is just as nice.
I'll be there again today, quilting the day away and enjoying the entertainment in the Heritage Tent.
There are scottish dancers, singers and storytellers to enjoy. Come visit and say hello!
What are you hand stitching today?
