I am several hours into new project.
I've gone back to small stitch quilting. Big stitch has taken its toll on my hand as I find it hard to do the rocking stitch with a larger needle.
I'm using a size 9 needle and plain old quilting thread.
It's good to be back. Like riding a bicycle, once you master a hand-quilting stitch, it never leaves you, and that's a very good thing.
