I machine quilted a table runner that my Mom made -
the pattern is Cabin in the Woods.
I did an all over leaf and loop design with variegated Aurifil 50WT thread.
My practice on the white board before I got started.
Here is another art quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (I hand stitched the binding down this morning while Skype-ing with Wendy and Joan - amazing world).
This one is 8" x 10". I painted the square, couched thread on it, pieced it and quilted it. I used Aurifil 50 WT red thread and the gold thread is a thicker rayon thread (Iris thread from Mexico).
I tried out a Frixion pen - it wrote beautifully on the fabric (I used a Staedtler circle template to mark the circle - thanks for the tip Wendy),
but when I ironed the quilt to get the lines out, you could still see a faint white line. I even tried water, and the eraser on the pen to try to remove the lines. I wouldn't use this pen on an heirloom quilt. It probably didn't help that the fabric is dark.
I finally got around to making this month's EQ BOM - November Novelty, just one month to go.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥
