Quilting in the slow lane
Well technically piecing. This quilt will be over 100" so I don't fancy it for my first quilting project on a hand cranked machine. I haven't had a chance to get the power in the van sorted out so I have been looking for non electric solutions. Solar lighs and a hand crank machine. It's a joy to work on actually and surprisingly fast. I suspect it will be great for curved piecing because of the amount of control you have. I have to admit I just love the idea of piecing a big quilt top without power. It's one of those things you just have to do if you can.
