Happy Friday the 13th!
The Hugs and Kisses mini has been unsewn and resewn, and is finally ready for hand quilting. It is pin basted, threads are chosen and the stitching has begun.
I am trying two new things with this quilt:
1) I am not using a hoop. I have read in a few Slow Sunday Stitching link ups that some hand quilters don't use a hoop, so I thought I'd try it out and see if I like it.
2) I am using this quilt as a test run for eucalyptus batting. The packaging says it is good for machine or hand quilting, and so far it is needling fine by hand. The price was good, but I have no idea how it will hold up over time, and I could not find much information about that from Mr. Google. Have you ever used this type of batting?
