Nightingale quilt. I decided to use a big-stitch technique for this and am liking it so far. That is basically the same hand quilting I always do, but with an embroidery needle and 12wt Aurifil thread. I believe the 12wt correlates to the 12wt in pearl cotton. This Aurifil is dreamy in this weight. A delight to hand quilt with. This top will go super fast. The quilt is 90" square and I expect that I will have it just about finished by the end of the month - and that is only sewing on it in the evenings. I'll keep you posted as to my expectations.
hera marker to make the top - my favorite tool for straight lines.
I haven't decided on how I will quilt the nine patch "crosses" yet. I have a day or two to decide before I get to them.
Polly is at a workshop in Florida this weekend. She says "Hi" and wanted me to tell you that there will be a new Semper Fi Rug Kit posted soon here.
Paula asked in our last post - to list all of our fabric collections. Wow, I just wrote them down and it sure sounds like a lot. 35 to be exact. Lissa Alexander mentioned the last time I saw her that we had over 30 collections. I said that couldn't be right. Well, I guess since Moda Fabrics counts the woven and wool collections as separate - then it is well over 30. My, my - how times flies. I'll list them here - they can also be found HERE on our website. Over on the left - they are in 2 places - Past Collections has the first that we did before we had the website - and then the rest are listed under Moda Fabric collections. All are here except for the one that ships in September - Midwinter Reds.
