Tutorial: Handquilting Video

handquilting buttons and bows quilt

This video shows how I handquilt with perle 8 thread.  I don't use a quilting hoop and just have it on my lap.  For the purposes of filming the video, the quilt was on a table.  

I like to use Jeana Kimball's Redwork Embroidery Needle Size 9 but I think needles are a personal preference.  I usually quilt with perle 8 or perle 12 thread.  In this video I am using Wonderfil Eleganza Perle 8 thread.  The thread comes in a selection of beautiful vibrant colours.  Other brands I enjoy using are DMC (Perle 8 and 12) and Aurifil (Perle 12).
