HQAL – Sunday 11th July 2021

Hello Everybody

As you will have seen from an earlier post that I have been busy purchasing new stock and setting up panels for quilting, mainly because I need the practice. However, I have not neglected the Pirate Quilt so here are some photos of my progress. The corner is quilted using Gutermann Col.111 and the waves are quilted using Aurifil 50/2 Col.1148. The rope design on the sand area (see previous photos) is quilted using Gutermann Col.4014 a variegated thread. I don’t have a preference on thread at the moment being new to quilting but if anyone has a favourite weight or make of thread then let me know.

Still a long way to go.

Bye for now


This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  1. well done for being brave and trying out different quilting techniques & threads. I belonged to a patchwork club about 8 years ago, where ladies wanted everything done by hand, so I obliged, but I much prefer piecing and quilting on the machine.


  2. I have only hand pieced and quilted and for years relied on Quilting Thread bought at Joanns, American Quilting Thread, 100% glaced cotton. Recently bought and using Essential from Connecting Threads (google ~ find on line) discovered them from reading others blogs. I think whatever your comfortable using works. Your quilt is really cute and your stitching looks great.
