The last couple of days I’ve been piecing and quilting like a quilter. Crazy I know. It’s been fun.
I’m loving my B 780 more than ever. In part because I had a total ditzy moment today while piecing the quilt top. I put the #46 C foot on to make some piping for this quilt: note to self use the fine cord.
I like this foot for both pin tucks and thin piping. Once I send the a photo of the quilt top to where it’s going I’ll post a complete photo here and let you know where/when I’m teaching.
I picked up a spool of Superior Tiara – a 50 wt. variegated silk thread. Oh me oh my am I in love.
I’ve paired this with Radiance, and a cotton/wool batting by Hobbs. I love how this shows off the stitching. I will be getting more of this batting.
Our Mountain Laurel is getting ready to bloom. My sweetie was concerned that we would lose these and a few other bushes/plants with the cold this past winter. So far so good. We’ve lost the wild/tame battle with one of our roses, mind you it’s 40 years old give or take.
I thought we had it pretty well under control then it started leafing out and everything that’s coming up is wild.
Oh well. we can’t have it all plant wise.
