Bad Stitches Happen to Good People: Why I'll never cable without a cable needle again.

Topic: Whole Cloth Quilting
Anna Maria Horner's Needleworks
The DIY Dish's interview with Anna Maria Horner

After doing more research, I ran across this post from Cinderberry Stitches, which recommends Perle Cotton No. 8 for this technique.

This post by Anna Maria Horner recommends either No. 5, 7, or 8 and warns the smaller the number the thicker the thread. She also has great tips on what type of hoop to use, how to hide your knot, and where to start quilting.

  1. Oh! I see that you like the pattern I designed for Frosted Pumpkin - thanks for posting it! I've totally been eyeing Alicia's pattern too - it's gorgeous!

  2. Hi Kaye! I love your work - can't wait to tackle that pattern. Thanks for taking the time to comment! :-)

  3. Hi Sarah
    Just coincidentally, just after listening to this podcast, I came across this: You had said that you thought you could only do a whole cloth quilt the width of the fabric - but these quilters seemed to have done quilt as you go technique to create a larger quilt. It's something I hadn't seen before for whole cloth quilts, so thought I'd send it on to you.

  4. @Colleen - This is great article and beautiful quilt. Thanks for passing it along!
