I had never seen a half quilting hoop before! That's neat. I've always done machine quilting, rather than hand quilting, but I can imagine how handy this half hoop must be.
Before I found this, Jean, I used to do this crazy method with bias tape and safety pins on a round hoop to keep the edges taut. This is incredibly more efficient. I found it in a shop in Paducah one year when I went to AQS.Kind regards, Dana
Sweet photos and baby quilt!! I think you should do a video on your hand quilting process Dana!
Oh, thank you, Mary. When Dan is next home, I will enlist his help to try that. He's done several vodcasts on his blog and has the experience.Kind regards,Dana
I continue to be impressed with your hand quilting productivity! I have one of those half hoops, too...the perfect thing for borders!
Oh, thank you, Cat. When I use these long threads and straight quilting lines so don't have to stop to turn the hoop or tie knots, I can go like the wind. I'm in complete agreement about the half hoop. God bless the person who thought that up!Kind regards, Dana
