Hand quilting a wholecloth quilt enlivens the surface and adds beautiful texture to the front and back of your quilt. Anna Maria shows the entire process of creating a baby quilt, from laying out and basting, then highlighting the design of a printed fabric with even stitching, and finally binding the quilt with single fold bias binding. Anna Maria also shows gorgeous examples of how this technique can be applied to pillows and clothing.
