The all-over feathers sure finish much quicker than the smaller, ruler-work finish!!! But both were equally fun to complete and I’ll definitely use this piecing technique (with modifications?) again!

Thread: (top) Glide; (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly. Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton (80/20).

Note: As always, to make the photo larger, just left click on it.

    Just beautiful … even the back!!

  5. Beautiful! I noted that you are using Glide as top thread. I am having issues with thread shredding. Tried lower tension, top stitch needle, size 16 needle, finally changed to king ttut, heavier threas, no shredding. Any thoughts?

      Burr on the throat plate hole? Fabric movement too fast for machine speed. Ummm………interesting, cuz King Tut’s heavier cotton has never been a fave of mine (way too much lint build up and I prefer the sheen of Glide).
