Tons of projects to do! Quilting, quilting, quilting.....must keep quilting..... Testing threads.
I wanted to use this variegated thread on this quilt so badly! But alas, it would not cooperate with the light colored back, no matter how well I got my tension. I wasn't feeling brave enough to go with a darker bobbin thread on the light back, plus I would have then had issues on the top when the thread was in its lighter color.
Testing more threads.
The winner for the stitch-in-the-ditch on this Dresden Plate ended up being the monofilament. Not my favorite thread, but I just couldn't find a shade that worked with all of these wonderful colors.
The cream thread to the right of the mono is the winner for the cream background and in the bobbin. It's a So Fine #50 from Superior Threads.
I've got a good start on this customer quilt and now I'm off to mark a cool design for the inner border! (I hope you like it, dear customer/reader!)
