Quilting, quilting, quilting…..I’ve been quilting! I have several projects to get finished and one project is actually two pillows using the Box block tutorial. I decided to do free motion organic lines…..love that term…..it means the lines don’t have to be straight. Anyway, I did 5 lines about 2 inches apart going right through the brown prints and then decided I didn’t care for it. What to do? Well, I started on the other pillow and quilted just the cream sections and really, really liked that. Good thing the weather was nice so I could sit out on the deck with my seam ripper and remove the stitching on the first one.
I am quilting my Box block pillows using #2405 and #2372 of Aurifil thread. I still need to do the quilting on the brown batiks, I haven’t decided how I will quilt that part yet.
I already had both of these colors and it was great to see that they are included in Christa Watson’s Piece and Quilt Collections Neutrals by Aurifil.
Look what came in the mail the other day, Aurifil thread in a beautiful variety of neutrals! There was a giveaway on Aurifbuzz with a great interview with Christa and I won her neutral collection. You can find Christa as Christa Quilts where she shares quilting tips, tutorials, patterns and more. Christa even sent me a couple of her cute buttons that she passed out at Quilt Market, thanks so much!I took a quick picture of the colors before I removed the plastic from them, there are 3 different grey/blue colors that I have used before on quilts and I’ll be using one or two of these soon when I quilt my Winter Wonderland project that I’ll be sharing this month as a Island Batik ambassador.
I think we may head to the cities today, we sold our dining room set….about a month ago. I have a smaller table set picked out…..just need to go order it. I wonder where we will eat lunch……..
