In this window of four assorted fabrics I have quilted using DMC perle 8 thread (not shown in this image) and the result has been great.
Now here is a little tip....place the shape with the bias underneath the straight edge when sewing and this will help to eliminate any stretching.
As you may have guessed this project is almost finished and has an easy pieced border. You should be able to see the finished item some time next week.
This is the second block in what I've named "The Little Civil War Quilt". Coming together just fine I am about to add the last borders and write the pattern.
Things are all systems go at the moment...the creative thoughts have been working overtime this week.
