'Big' Stitch Hand-Quilting

I have been looking around at sites that show 'Big' Stitch Hand-Quilting to see if it would suit my 60's quilt. There is a lot of difference in the size of the stitches that people use. Most of the quilting I saw would be better described as 'Medium' stitich quilting.
I've decided to do real big, 'Big' stitch quilting. I found a long, sharp strong needle and a ball of some perle cotton thread. I am making my stitches 'Big' and the quilting is moving along quickly. The main thing to do is keep the stitches as even as possible. I should be able to finish this one off quickly and then get back to a couple of quilts I am trying to 'Small' stitch hand -quilt!


  1. Looks good Penny. Looks like an 8 or 12 pearl cotton?
    One of these days I'll give it a go.

  2. Hi Dawn, Not sure what pearl the cotton is. Just found this ball in my sewing basket. Hope I don't run out!
