What a fine, rainy day it is today! It is the perfect day to stay in your pajamas and play if you ask me!
I have been wanting to get quilting on Night Sky but I was a little apprehensive because what I want to do is a bunch of techniques that I haven't done a lot of before. Then I remembered the left-over blocks from the quilt!
I grabbed the blocks and pieced them together into a runner so that I could test-quilt without the pressure ;-) These are the less than perfect blocks so if it's not perfect I won't be too upset at myself.
I decided to double layer the batting as well; cotton on the bottom and silk on the top to see how I like quilting with a double layer - might as well try it out here and not on the quilt!
Now I am just laying out a few different threads to see what colours I like and then I can get to work. I think I have everything I was needing for this quilt, sigh, I was really hoping that I could justify some thread purchasing LOL!! Maybe next time.
So any thoughts about the threads? I am envisioning some pretty heavy quilting on this one so it should be fun to see where it all goes! Time to bring over some more light so I can see on the black.
