When quilts come into our offices for photographing or I visit a quilt show or gallery, I always study the stitching. The patterns, the variation of the motifs, the intricacy of the stitching always fascinates me. Observing the work of expert stitchers fills me with admiration and also sends me flying to my sewing machine so I can practice new motifs and stitching rhythms.
