Hand Stitching in Quilting

The color explosion continues. As more hand embroidery is added, this quilt is becoming more cohesive. It's about half way done, which still leaves lots of hours to keep my stitchy hands busy.
The piece combines couching, quilting and hand embroidery.

FYI, some referral links follow. See the policies page for more info.

Update: Find two of my art quilts using creative hand embroidery in the new book 350 Quilting Tips, Techniques and Trade Secrets: How to be better at what you do
This book is an all-in-one resource for quilters and stitchers of all levels. It covers everything from tools and supplies to color confidence and finishing techniques. Two quilts I made, another Hand Embroidery Quilt like this one and a folksy Brown Bird Collage Quilt are featured. So happy to be a contributor to such an amazing resource book!

I also find lots of stitch inspiration for hand embroidery from The Stitch Bible by Kate Haxell.
It's such a modern and up to date book yet it wonderfully covers many types of traditional stitch from Blackwork, Hardanger, Crewel, and Goldwork to Freestyle Embroidery. It also has projects.  Beautifully presented and easy to follow. A great book for beginners.

Hand embroidery is so rewarding and creative. It really is an adventure I recommend everyone try!
