Are YOU ready for St. Valentine’s Day?
You still have time to create a quick mini-quilt for your Valentine!
Today’s Quick tip: Use negative space to create a design.
Draw a heart shape on the fabric and quilt around it.
If your Valentine is a quilter, add a few spools of red and pink thread! I love to use Aurifil 28wt cotton for my top thread and 50 wt in the bobbin when I’m free motion quilting. The 28wt cotton is heavy enough to create a great focal motif and the 50 wt lasts a long time in the bobbin. (Use a 90 Topstitch needle)
What about YOU?
Do YOU ever use negative space in your quilts to create a design?
Do YOU LOVE to quilt?
Would YOU rather receive thread or chocolate for Valentine’s Day?
We’d LOVE to hear!
