What is Hand Lettered Quilting?
Hand lettered quilting is a technique that allows you to incorporate chalkboard-art style into your creations. Karlee Porter is the designer behind this style of quilting, typically done by free-motion stitching.
What is done by “hand,” then, you ask? Creating the design is done by hand, and the resulting design has a hand-drawn look. To achieve the look in stitches, there are three options: hand embroidery, free-motion and machine embroidery.
In Sulky’s free webinar on November 12 at 2pm EDT, Karlee will showcase all three methods so you can use the one that suits you and your creative style. Plus, you’ll learn how to create a postcard using a digitized hand-lettered quilting design.
