GOODBYE to ''RULES''Well . .I have to accept that I have finished with hand quilting . . .especially on a standing quilt frame . . Trying to stitch in all directions is for me a thing of the past . . ..
I don't have the patience anymore and I'd rather be hooking ... so heres my rug mug of yesterday.
When I first started to hook ,it seems there were ''RULES'' out there and one was that to hook properly one had to be able to hook in all directions without turning the hoop or frame that your backing was stretched over . . . .
I never did hear a logical reason why this was so . . . . I do think if you are using a Cheticamp floor frame ,
it would be necessary to be able to hook in all directions!. . .. as the large frame can not be turned -just as the quilting frame yesterday . . . .
Maybe thats where this RULE was made -years ago when folks hooked all together sitting around a large floor frame ?
