Big Stitch Quilting

A while ago I made this lap quilt, I called it "Tutti Fruitti". It is hand quilted in the 'big stitch style'. I used perle cotton thread and a good sized needle. This style of hand quilting is very fast to do and gives, I think, a great, fun look to quilts. All of the coloured fabrics are hand dyed.
For this quilt I used varigated threads. I started the centre circle by drawing round my tea cup and just went round increasing each time by one inch, it took me approximately one week to quilt... like I said, it is fast hand stitching this way.
