Today is International Quilting Day, and I celebrating by making my March blocks for a block of the month that I am doing with my online quilt group.
Here are all the blocks so far (we started this BOM in January, with one pieced and one appliqué block a month) -
The pattern is 'Pieces of Time' from Lori Smith. I am using Laundry Basket Quilts fabrics (Dancing in the Rain).
I have plans to make a whole cloth quilt, and before I order some thread, I wanted to compare some different weights of threads that I had to choose from.
I free motion quilted with 100Wt (InvisaFil), 60Wt (The Bottom Line) and 50Wt (Aurifil), using wool batting and plain cotton, like the quilt I am planning. Normally I like the look of 100Wt thread, but because the quilt will be a bed quilt, I am planning on using 60Wt thread. I was surprised that they all looked fine, and that the back tracking wasn't too visible.
I had to include a picture from our little town, we are still waiting for the snow to melt here.
Happy Quilting Day and thanks for stopping by!!♥
