What I Quilted on a Saturday Night

Hi all!

Summer is finally here and I am loving it!  Last night while my husband was golfing I decided to load this hexi baby quilt top (that I had made ages ago) onto my frame and get it quilted.


I cut this entire quilt using dies and it went together so nicely.  I used the Accuquilt Go! Hexigon die (55011) and the Equilateral Triangle (55079) die.  

I am very happy with the way that it turned out.  I used the 40 weight Fil-Tec Glide polyester thread top and bobbin and I just love the way that it shines!  It shines like a rayon thread without the finickiness of rayon (is that a word?) and without all the thread breaks.  I am also in love with the magna-glide pre-wound bobbins.  They are awesome and there is so much thread packed onto one!  If you can believe it this quilt used almost one entire M-class pre-wound bobbin!  That's a lot of thread!

Ok enough gushing about the Glide thread!  Now to bind this little guy :-)

I have never used the Glide -since I don't have a longarm. But I hear good things about it all the time.
