odern 3-dimensional take on the traditional tumbling block featuring a hand quilting method I call “Walking Hand” which resembles the walking foot machine quilting method modern quilters have become known for. Directional hand quilting spaced 3/8” apart enhances the 3D effect of the blocks. Surrounding white background is hand-stitched at 1/2” intervals with glow in the dark thread that illuminates the center blocks. There are approximately 10,700 inches of running stitches in this 68” square foundation paper pieced quilt. “WALKING HAND” was accepted into the gallery of quilts seen in Nashville at the Modern Quilt Guild’s annual QuiltCon 2019.
