With BigStitch, a form of hand quilting which uses thick, high-contrast pearl cotton, I hope to preserve the tradition of hand quilting. BigStitch is an instructional booklet I wrote in 1993 (registered copyright VA 564 156). BigStitch Lessons 1-5 on YouTube provide free videos of this method.
Lesson #4: The quilting stitch, thimble and rubber fingertip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_-Ct-z9j7s
All the Lessons are free; search in YouTube for Jo Glover BigStitch.
