Combining Stitches

I've been combining stitches lately and I loving it.  This quilt has many elements, but machine quilting with hand stitching is giving my quilts a little extra punch.  I have used this technique before on a few AAQI quilts.

Last year I made some Mug Rugs for friends.  After machine quilting, I added hand stitching using gold metallic thread. It, also, helped to accent the flight of a few butterflies.

Give it a try---it gives the quilt an added layer of interest.  Happy Quilting!
