The discussion question(s) for this week:
What techniques were popular back when you first began quilting?
Remember . . you can answer them in comments or you can write them down in a journal format or save them in your computer.
Back when I began quilting in the early 80’s, everything was done by hand. We used a sandpaper board, placed our fabric usually wrong side up, traced around the template, then using a quarter inch tool, we drew a second cutting line. We used plain old scissors and cut out the pieces on the cutting line, then hand sewed using the first drawn line.
Once the quilt was done, we hand quilted it. It was in the early 90’s before I ever heard of a longarm machine. Some folks were beginning to quilt a bit on their sewing machines but I was a hand quilter.
