It’s been MONTHS since I’ve been quilting.Â There have been so many distractions since right before the holidays 2008. Â No more excuses, today is the day.
I picked my panto:Â Meandering Daisy from Urban Elementz
I loaded my top fabric, muslin backing & wool batting.
Full frontal view:
I selected a gorgeous Fil-Tec Glide Thread and started quilting…yahoo!
I’ve completed 5 passes…just about 4 more to go. I haven’t had many problems with breakage or tension.Â However, thanks to Ginger’s antics (50 pounds of English Bulldog slamming into me) I did need to stop and pick out a couple of times.
My favorite gadget for this is still the Superior Snippers.Â This tool is fantastic for digging in to carefully isolate just the right thread to pick out and then snip–if desired–all in one smooth movement.
Stay tuned. I have plans to add some “over” quilting using at least one different thread color for increased dimension.Â If all goes well I’ll have pictures of that to share with you next week.
Happy sewing & quilting!!
