Honeycomb Stitchalong! First let me send kudos to Jenelle over at Echinops and Aster for putting on this great stitchalong. The instructions were fabulous, and the entire project was a joy to work on. I bought a kit for the project from Sew Lux Fabric - the kit was beautifully put together, and it made me so happy to be working with the lovely fabrics and threads. I would definitely enjoy doing another project with Jenelle and I am already window shopping at Sew Lux!
This week was mostly about quilting the pillow top- it has a combination of machine quilting and hand quilting. For the machine quilting I used Aurifil thread and my walking foot. There was so much stopping and turning, I wonder if I might have been better doing it more free motion. The hand quilting was done with perle cotton, and with the big needle I needed to use for the thickness of the thread, I could not use my normal quilting stitch techniques, I needed to treat it more like embroidery. I am thrilled with the results though, just a little glad the back of the hand quilting does not show!
