I started this quilt last spring...
I haven't touched it since July....eek!
It is now basted and ready to go under the needle:
Green & White Quilt 109 inches
Time to audition thread:
I spooled all of these threads out onto the quilt surface.
I am hoping to find one that blends with the white and the greens.
This creamy yellow thread will work for the top...
Sulky PolyLite 60wt
Made in Italy
Thread for the back of the quilt:
This is Yellow thread, but reads brassy in this photo.
It blends nicely with the yellow and green backing fabric.
Top and Bottom Threads
Sulky PolyLite is a newer thread on the market.
It is light weight and doesn't attract too much attention...
Just what I am hoping for.
I have been playing with quilting motifs:
Since this quilt is for my favorite guy, I am trying to keep
the quilting masculine.
I always make a few extra blocks so I can play around
with some free motion quilting:
The creamy yellow thread blends in beautifully with the
white and dark green fabrics
Testing out threads gives me a chance to warm up my
The bobbins are filled...
The tension is adjusted just right...
I am all warmed up and ready to stitch...
The quilt is on the Sweet 16 table...
The table is 6 feet wide...
This is where I will spend the rest of the day:
I am thinking 3 or 4 days to get this quilted.
More to Come!
