For those of you who have not tried it, it is the same process as regular handquilting. You use a hoop and rock your needle exactly the same way. The difference being you are using a pearl cotton thread that allows you to take large stitches, speeding up the process greatly. I use a number 8 pearl cotton and an embroidery needle. You get a quilt that softly drapes and has great texture.
These photos show a sneak peak at the first new pattern. It is called Selene and uses a layer cake and a tiny bit of yardage for some sashing borders. The fabric is Luna Notte by 3 Sisters for Moda. I LOVE it. I have been a 3 Sisters fan always but this line is probably my favorite since Wuthering Heights and Chocolat. The black is gorgeous. I love black fabrics and good ones are hard to find sometimes. The paisley is fantastic. The precuts are in shops now and the yardage shoud be available soon. As soon as I get the pattern printed I will be doing a give away. Stay tuned.
