I’ve been working on hand quilting my Sampler Quilt for almost 2 years now. It’s one of those projects I keep setting aside. This poor baby is in desperate need of a washing so I’ve decided to move it to the top of my UFO list. I’ve tried traditional hand quilting using a hoop and applied various techniques with varying degrees of failure. Pretty and expensive lap quilt hoop now resides in a closet. For me, the best way to go is hoopless hand quilting. Sharon Schamber’s Hoopless Hand Quilting video is one of the best tutorials available illustrating the technique.
