Barbara Burnham replied to Kathleen Danley's discussion Batting in the group Hand Quilting
"Colleen, when I volunteered at our State Fair, there were a few quilts that had Minkie on the back. They were machine quilted, and wonderfully soft. Not sure if you could hand quilt it though. I will have to try your fleece idea."

Barbara Burnham replied to Pam Parkinson's discussion Stencil Design vs. Straight Line Hand Quilting in the group Hand Quilting
"For my applique quilts, I like to hand quilt around the applique, then crosshatch in the background. In large areas with no applique, I LOVE feather quilting - stencils are helpful with those designs. My favorite background quilting designs…"

"Over the years, my favorite hoop is the 14 inch Hinterberg Lap Hoop. The base rests on your lap and holds the hoop so you have both hands free. It turns and tilts in any direction. Well made and great customer service. Best investment I've…"

Hello Barb... My Country Cousins was my first Baltimore type quilt.  It also was my first hand applique, hand quilted project.  I tried a few different techniques when I started this project, but quickly found needle turn to work the best for me.  I find that my quilting needs improvement, but I have to keep it pretty middle of the road to finish this one so that my quilting does not look drastically different at the end than it did at the beginning.  I'm liking how it is all turning out, and I have learned alot along the way, both with the applique and the quilting.  Next hand project will likely be alot more detailed... I'm feeling very inspired.

Congratulations on having a quilt entered into a show!  I've had a few of them go to Houston, and more going this year, but they are not for judging; they are fundraisers for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.  I'd love to go to Houston someday.  Have you ever been to that show?  I hope you'll be able to attend your show!

By the way, thanks for adding me as a friend!
