One of the kitties actually writes a Quilting Column for a magazine–(See if you can guess which one!)

Fishy-A Work in Progress

FMQ, Fish, Lori Kennedy

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…

FMQ, Fish, Lori Kennedy

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.

FMQ, Fish, Lori Kennedy

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…
