It’s a heat wave! Well…at least it is warmer…and “plenty of sun”…makes us feel like going outside again. I know some of you are still facing terrible weather…we are thinking of you!
I stitched this little vase quilt so you could see The Square Flower from yesterday’s tutorial in action.
I wanted a slightly more casual effect for this quilt, so rather than using rayon on the top, I used Aurifil 28 wt cotton on top and Aurifil 50 wt in the bobbin. I prefer a the slightly heavier weight Aurifil whenever I use cotton for free motion quilting. It provides a fuller look. I stitched with a size 90 Schmetz Topstitch needle on my Bernina 820–no space for a long arm here!
