Have you ever gone into an antique store in a small town? What is one item that is bound to be at every antique store — no matter where you go? A hand-tied quilt!
Tying a quilt by hand was a popular way of quilting in days gone by, but it seems quilt tying is a lost art, especially in the modern quilt era.
I love the look of a tied quilt. The ties add such a sweet finish to a quilt top and a fun 3D texture. Plus, once you have the knot tying figured out, it can be much quicker and easier than hand or machine quilting. Sounds like a win-win to me!
