For that first one, I cut each piece with a template and hand pieced each block. The queen sized quilt was hand quilted.
On my newest quilt the pieces were cut with a GO cutter thanks to my friend, Pat.http://www.alittleofthisandalittleofpat.blogspot.com/ Then I sat and chain pieced some of the blocks. It is amazing how fast the quilt is moving along.
Thirty years ago, rotary cutters weren't used and now we have the Go cutters...what will make quilting faster in the future?
Nothing can take the place of feeling the needle move through the fabric when hand piecing.
I love to do needle turn applique ....but now machine applique and fused pieces are all the rage.....
What are your thoughts about changes in quilting?
Today my grandson is coming so I probably won't get much done but I can't wait to get back to my newest creation.
