OK so I decided to try my hand (no pun intended!) at hand quilting. The "victim" is the US flag I have been working on for almost a month now. I am using Perle cotton and size 9 needle. I have also tried other needles and thimbles too. I just can't seem to work the stitch with that thimble in on the action. Furthermore, I have stubbornly resorted to my own way which is working for me:P He, he! I am thinking of a Sulky thread for the dark blue area and Guetermann thread for the white area and red area well because that is what I have currently and the Perle thread is hard to get through the fabric dawg gone it:) It looks really nice for the star blocks so I figured let those "shine" and then everything else doesn't have to stand out as much. That was my thought at least late last night. Pic to follow soon, promise.
Have a fantastic Wednesday--the week is almost through! Be joyful in everything!
