What to do?
A table runner seemed the obvious choice. I must admit that I haven't finished the binding yet, but the rest is done! No one's perfect after all. I trimmed down my medallion panel and then added a blue border.
One of my learnings for this project was to play with 12 weight thread. This thread is Spaghetti thread by Wonderfil. I used a 50 weight Aurifil cotton in the bobbin. I had to adjust the tension a bit, but it worked wonderfully. I simply outlined all the medallions with the thick blue thread to make them stand out even more. I went for an easy stipple in the background.
For the thin blue border I quilted a heart like pattern in a 40 weight Aurifil thread. Three different weights on the same quilt. And so much fun that now I want to buy more thick threads....and Houston is in a week...I'm in trouble already!
Is anyone else attending Houston Festival? I'd love to meet you!
I hope you get to quilt today!
