Wow! I can't believe that this is the final month of the Traverse BOM! What a wild ride! I know a lot of folks have gotten excited and already sewn their rows together.
When it comes to finishing, my favorite way to finish a quilt is always hand quilting. I love the look of hand quilting. My favorite threads are made by Wonderfil and I carry them over in my shop. They are the perfect weight to give you that lovely texture, but are still thin enough to easily pull through your fabric.
If you're new to hand quilting or it sounds intimidating, don't be afraid! You don't have to jump in and quilt your ENTIRE quilt by hand. You can use hand quilting to add a little texture or metallic pop to your quilt.
BOM participants get a 15% discount on my Hand Quilting On-Demand Course for the month of August 2023, so head to Thinkific for your discount code! If you've never tried hand quilting before or want to hone your skills, this is a fun class to check out!
I hope you all had fun this last year, working on Traverse, I know I did! If you're sad it's ending, don't despair! I have the next BOM already in the works! Stay tuned for details and sneak peeks coming soon!
See you on social media!
Part of the fun of a sew-along is interacting with other quilters! There are a couple of places we're loving seeing your BOM progress:
