My brother in law’s girlfriend turns 30 this week. Here’s the card I made for her.
A close up of the lettering
And a close up of the feathering:
I liked the effect of the “double quilting” so much that I went back to my shop sample and started doing this:
Originally I’d quilted the feathers. Then I saw some feather work by Sally Bramald and thought I’d give it a go. Check out the quilting on her banner. Absolutely amazing!
The effect of another color and more quilting really makes the whole thing pop. I’ll post a full view of the quilt front and back when I’m finished quilting it.
I said I’d post a photo of threading the arm of the bobbin:
I use this when I’m quilting with MasterPiece or Bottom Line or So Fine in the bobbin. This adds a bit of tension from the bobbin without messing with the screw. Mind you I’ll turn the screw with no hesitation. I’ve never had a problem with the screw coming out. I’ve just found with certain threads that threading the arm is more effective adjusting the tension than turning the screw.
Pay it Forward…post on this blog by 2/21 and you’ll be included in the pay it forward. I haven’t decided what fabric to send as of yet. I’ll include 4 people in the PIF give away.
