Intro to Hand Quilting

No matter how much technology moves forward and no matter how many fancy tools hit the market, there's always a feeling among quilters of returning to basics, returning to simpler times, and returning to a handmade look in our projects. And hand quilting is a technique that long-time quilters will remember and that newer quilters are seeing in their Instagram feeds as a fresh and trendy way to embellish your quilts. Lindsay shares the basic tools needed to get started hand-quilting your projects, as well as ideas for marking designs on your quilt top.
