Ever since I started blogging I find myself wanting to try new colors and techniques. For me that is one of the best things about blogging, discovering styles of quilting that I might not otherwise see or techniques that I see used in a new way. Case in point is big stitch quilting. While I had seen it used several years ago on primitive style quilts, it wasn't until I hit the blogs that I began seeing its potential when used with bright more modern quilts and decided to give it a try. On my last trip to Florida I made this little top to brighten up my sewing room wall here and knew it was the perfect project. It was quick and easy using peeled cotton and utility needles and overall I am pretty happy with the results. Maybe next time I will use a hoop but I do love the ability to play with the thread colors and designs. It has a wonderful soft drape when finished so would be perfect for a baby quit - that is if the threads don't bleed. I'm sure I'll be trying this again.
