Big Stitch Hand Quilting, sometimes called utility quilting, is a hand quilting technique for stitching together all the layers of a quilt. Just as the name implies, a larger stitch size is achieved and is more prominent on your quilt or project. Traditional hand quilting uses fine thread and as many small, even stitches per inch as one can manage for a delicate and detailed effect. With big stitch quilting, larger thread and stitches create definition and a chunky texture that brings lots of dimension to a quilt.
