Barn Lot Quilt Series……Progress

Barn Lot Quilt #2

The rusted background is all pieced now

and back up on the design wall…

These are the next series of images 

to appliqué onto the background.

Rusted Fabric Tips:

Finer needles such as 60 and 70 size 

work best for rusted fabric.

I am using monofilament thread in the needle.

I don't want my appliqué stitches to show.

I am using this brown, thin, Bottom Line thread 

in the bobbin.

I am using stitch number 26

I call it the chicken foot stitch.

It is a favorite for appliqué stitching.

You can barely see the appliqué stitching 

on these images…

I don't want the appliqué stitching to compete later on

with the machine quilting stitching.

May Your Bobbin Always Be Full,
