Some hand quilting

I've been hand quilting this 9-patch Doll quilt pattern (freebie) by Kathleen Tracy.  Just simple lines using Pearl No.8.  I would like to try YLI thread one day.  Many hand quilters swear by it.  For the borders perhaps some fancier design as seen on the stencil.  I am using a new batting and I quite like it.  It's Tuscany (Hobbs) Heirloom cotton.  Also with the help of a leather thimble and a finger cot hand quilting is a much more pleasant experience.
As for the Broderine Perse quilt I cut a couple of motif on fusible web but somehow they don't jive with the background.  I don't have any large floral print fabrics so I've put it aside till the next round of shopping ;)


  1. Where did you get the batting? I got mine from Mr Yee and have no idea what is the brand (got to ask next time I see him).

  2. I used some YLI thread on my little quilt and it was lovely to quilt with. Your projects are looking really good.
