Hi there, I've been trying to update my blog for over a week, but it's been a super eventful week. My youngest graduated from elementary school yesterday. That completes an 11 year stint at the same school, so a bittersweet ending. My son finished his finals and his second year of high school. With the summer months beginning, I hope to spend a little more free time sewing and quilting.
I have been dutifully working on outline quilting on my triangle quilt, but not really liking the results, so I decided to add feathers. I think it adds a dimension to the quilt that was missing.
I'm using a YLI machine quilting thread in variegated blues. I usually use Gutteman's or Coats & Clarks, but want to branch out and try some different brands. I picked up the YLI at a local quilt show last year. I only bought the one spool, and will probably need to source it online before I get too much further along. I'm hoping to have a good block of time to work on this next week, while both of my kids are away for the start of summer.
