Stash Report And The Little Diva

Nothing in or out this week.

I’m quilting the Stitching To Dye piece after a morning of frustration with my sewing machine. I finally figured out it didn’t like the thread I was using to FMQ. I switched it out and everything was fine, except the new thread isn’t 100% cotton. It will take the dye, but I’m not sure how well. There are two quilting passes that were done with 100% cotton thread, which will take the dye better. I thought about switching thread again but decided I’d be heading for a hot mess if I did. I keep reminding myself these pieces are EXPERIMENTS.

topographicThe quilting pattern is Topographic from the book Get Addicted To Free Motion Quilting by Sheila Snyder. I can see myself using some version of this pattern over and over. There’s a lot of room for improvisation.

I’m determined to get this quilt finished this week.
