Hi Suzy! I’ve been a fan of yours for a while and made many of your beautiful patterns. I have a question. When you do your hand-stitching what size of thread and needle do you use?
Thank you! I actually have a tutorial on this very thing! https://suzyquilts.com/how-to-hand-quilt/
Super, thanks so much!
I want to try so many of these! Most of all, though, I really want to know what the pattern is for the hexagon quilt in the title picture. I love big-stitch hand quilting, and I’ve been thinking of making a hexagon quilt like this. Thanks! Happy Christmas making, everyone!

Very nice. I was looking to make the hot pad mitts for my sisters this Christmas. They make a great gift!
I just love your emails what a treat. I was thinking that you have designed so many quilts. I was wondering when you started quilting and how many patterns have you designed? Thanks so much Suzy for sharing with us your freebies.
