TWO WAYS TO WRAP
Today, I would like to re-visit a quilt I stitched using The Perfect Present motif.
MORE QUILTING….ALWAYS MORE QUILTING?
Earlier this year, we all agreed that my Floral Applique was in need of bit more quilting.
When I pulled this quilt out this year, I thought it might benefit from a few background Snowflakes (tutorial HERE)
I decided to use Sulky’s Silver Metallic thread to create a bit of “dazzle”…
This flat, polyester thread has a beautiful, reflective shine. It looks just like snow!
To use specialty metallic threads:
- Size 90 Topstitch needle
- Lower the top tension significantly
- Cotton in the bobbin
- SLOW DOWN!
Now that I look at this on the computer screen, I wonder if I should add horizontal lines to the entire background, not just the lower area? It would look like plaid….
What do YOU think?
