What batting are you using?  Your quilting is so nice.  Thanks for sharing.

Mostly Warm and Natural....this one I used the rest of some bamboo batting Beenana sent me and obviously got me hooked on. I like that there is no beading and easy to stitch.

Hmm trying to see if my variegated thread colors show up but barely. And it's not like it is so obvious but I was trying to get a "shaded " effect.....

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.  I have tried warm and natural many times but it needles hard for me.  Did a king size with bamboo and it was difficult also.  Now doing a double wedding ring table runner with bamboo and it is fine.  First tried poly low loft...too many fibers showing up all over on dark burgundy, then tried Quilters Dream Select, didn't care for that effect so ended up back with the bamboo for this particular runner.  Might try your idea of YLI variegated thread though.  Cool.

Never too late to just start one. You can sew a few Orphan blocks yo have laying around and then hand quilt it for practice...It is fun, slower than machine quilting but you'll always have a take a long project......


Nancy, please list the batting you are bringing to Jane to try...I think it was Terma blend of something. Thank you

Thermore

I use it for the circles.

I have no idea how it would work for hand quilting but we can try it.

Connecting Threads carries it and it is frequently on sale.

Ok Jane thought  it was for quilting too. We can tell her....:)

I can't start back on my whole cloth which will be done really soon until I finish Denise the-quilt-ladys quilt for her....I'm going to work on it shortly....
It is going to be fun. I have the template she wants to use around the dresdans and then I get free reign to play with my stitching...free hand....It'll be fun.

Hymmmmmmmmm topics for Hand quilt section....

Applique with hand quilting to finish.
Hand piecing and hand quilting
Hand Quilting for beginners....any takers to do this one?
    I know there's lot to learn like needle type, thread, etc....
Cheater cloth hand quilting... this is something a lot of us like to do....I did one with a hot air balloon and it came out so nice. Even for a panel.....

Dare we start a Picture page for hand quilting? In this section of course...it's own topic.....The others can look and see what we do but not have to read thru it all to find them.

I think this is what I used on a small hand quilted wall hanging. 
It is thin and very light and soft.  I think Debbie will be happy if you bring her a sample.
Seems a little more delicate that the bamboo, but it has a nice 'feel' to it.
By more delicate I don't mean that it feels like it's going to fall apart with handling........lol

It is perfectly smooth and thin which is what you need or the circles.  So if that is good for hand quilting, it would be great.  I am bringing a whole bag of it for our circles.

I've got lots of ideas......

SO glad more are coming by.....Look forward to more pictures....

I don't see why using a med. or high loft poly and water soluable thread wouldn't work with hand quilting for your trapunto...just like it does for machine quilting.  Thats what I do.  I've never hand quilted the high loft, but I have the med. loft poly.  IMHO..poly works best for trapunto since it does not shrink at all and will keep your areas that you want popped up...stay popped up.  From one of my beginning quilter experiences...don't use a cotton or W & N...think "grandma's bra"....I'm just sayin'

I think it would be harder to do on a machine, Stewy, because it can't be as easy to start and stop so my hat's off to you.

Do you have pictures of your whole cloth ones?  I know this is a hand quilt section but I'm sure we'd all like to see them.

Maybe he can start a whole cloth machine quilting thread on the board.
Nothing again machine quilting, I love it but this is hand quilting......
We finally have our own section for it too....thank you Andii.......
So glad you jumped on the band wagon and got it done for us.....Thank you Admin too....
I wouldnt hijack your topic with pics or discussion of machine longarming, I simply stated I know how hard machine quilting is and I can only imagine what all you dedicated hand quilters go thru. Both types of whole cloths are pieces of art. I too love Holices WC Designs. The one little issue I have with any of the preprinted fabrics is the ink does not all wash out. No matter what one tries, it all wont all disapear.  I keep waiting for the Whole Cloth master to bring out some more of his super nice designs. I too have hand quilting on my To Do List. I have an antique top that needs to be quilted, and I am waiting for the most perfect time to do it. I even have an old fashioned floor model wooden quilting frame.
I am a longarmer with pricing starting at .015 per square inch, send pm for information please

I agree with you - I use med loft poly - don't like W&N - I use the med loft and on I think one I used the light loft and then on another I used a high loft and so far I like the med. loft for all my quilting.  If you pull on the thread tightly it can look just like trapunto and be puffed up plus stays that way after washing and drying (and I just wash and dry in the machines like everything else, don't do anything special on that part 'cuz I'm too lazy.. lol)

Thought of trying to get better pictures that show the color of the variegated thread, not happening but these are a little brighter to show the pattern as it develops .
Most of what is left to stitch in the squares...lots of them
I stitch them like long lines though. :D

I like thin batting for some things but i like my hand quilting to be a little thick....too thin just doesn't snuggle as well..and yes most of my quilts are used....and switched out....but not this one. :) I'll be playing in you bag when you get here.....

Debbie, its beautiful!  You are doing your usual fabulous job and I'm just jealous!

Stewey, have you tried a product called Blue Line Eraser on the preprinted?  It might work.  You can ask your LQS to order it for you, or you can order it on line at BlueLineEraser.com  It removes all the blue markers wonderfully...even if you've oops...ironed over them!

Sandpat , good to know. I have used the blue ink and purple and it always seems to come right off. I use a spray bottle to spritz it with and then towel it off.....
I'll have to have some of that so I can share it with friends who have this issue. I am thinking they leave it on too long...
Thank you .

Well even it doesn't, Sandpat had a good product suggestion.
By the time I finish mine, the ink is not viewable at all. This London Mist thread hides it well....and I guess the stitches are close enough together to not notice. I haven't washed this one yet and I don't see it in the pictures either....
Of course, this was a vintage one Dreamer had so it could have faded over the years before I started stitching. The newer ones are light though as well.

I already checked out Ladybugtx's two she ordered and they are like mine. Light, not dark lines.

I just ordered the blue line eraser that she posted. I got it just in case the lines won't come out since it is a gift for my DGD. I love the thread you are using I just used the normal ecru colored hand quilting thread. Is the thread you are using a quilting thread or a regular thread?

Debbie, I've never really had a problem with the lines going away...the problem is...they come back!  LOL!  Anyway, hope those trying the stuff like it like I do.

I've used regular King Tut variegated to hand quilt with and had no problem with it.  Debbie, you said you don't always follow the rules (who does?), but do you normally use a hand quilting thread to hand quilt?

This is one place to get it.
YLI is a machine quilting thread but quickly becoming a hand qulter's preference. You can read about it here. I love it....
This is a larger cone but you can order 500 yds for around 5.00
