Finally I'm starting a new project. I have a large blank wall in my guest room that is crying out for a quilt. I've always loved this quilt and have wanted to make it for a while and now I'm going to. It from the book "Winter Rose" by Barbara Brandeburg.
Since it's me making the quilt and I seem to have trouble ever making a quilt exactly as instructed, I will be making changes to both the applique and the piecing. Here's my fabric choices.
Karen from Sew Many Ways is hosting a linky party about thread storage. I love to do machine applique. My applique method is using a hand guided satin stitch. This requires many thread colors because I like to match my fabric as closely as possible. Here's a few examples of my method.
I have a tutorial for my method in the "Printable Tutorials" just below my header. Anyway on to thread storage...this is my current method.
It looks semi-organised right now, but this is not the normal condition and so I've purchased these.
I just need to get them hung on the wall and I'm hoping this keeps things neater. I'm also wanting to get to Ikea and purchase a magnetic knife holder for my bobbins. I show you the changes when I get them installed.
