Notes to myself as a beginning hand quilter.
About penciled lines. Following lines in quilting is boring. It's like coloring in a coloring book instead of making your own drawing or painting.
Get a good thimble and use it to push the needle through.
Build up callouses on your fingers and keep them. That means quilting every day. Until you have callouses, you'll have sore fingers. And never, never, never, never hand quilt immediately after washing your hands! It makes even calloused fingers so soft that the back end of the needle might poke through your fingers. Wait till your hands are completely dry.
