Good Morning, Quilters!
I’ve been fishing in my sewing room!
It was a rainy day in Minnesota and a golden opportunity to finish this cheery fish project.
I pulled out my palette of 30wt cotton threads...(Check out Sulky’s Sale HERE for the best prices.)
After stabilizing, I stitched around each of the fish and added a circle border using Sulky 30 wt cotton (Topstitch 90 needle).
Then I chose a variegated thread for the watery background. (Sulky 30wt cotton-Cotton Blendables)
I got a good start on the center…
NOTE–When you want your quilting design to show–use heavy weight thread (40wt or 30wt) in a contrasting color.
When you want the design to blend into the background, use lighter weight thread (50wt or 60wt) in a matching color.
I should have it done by the weekend…
What about YOU?
What are you stitching?
What are YOUR favorite threads?
We’d LOVE to hear!
I’d rather be quilting…
