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!
