  1. I love how your pictures capture the texture of the quilting. I want to reach out and touch it! 🙂 I love the tactile nature of quilting, don’t you? I’d also love to print those photos out and hang them on my wall. The detail is incredible. Stunning. Hooray for you, you’re awesome! 🙂 Also – I love Glide thread. Haven’t tried 60 wt yet, but you are inspiring me…..

      I finally “broke down” and ordered some 60wt cones and am not sorry!!!! I LUV the 40 wt but find the thread build-up on these smaller vintage pieces to be too visually “heavy” (and I seem to always do feathers!!! Imagine that! LOL!). This 60wt is amazing…..Feel free to print any of the photos I post……..I do the same. Pinning them to a cork board in front of me while stitching really helps me to keep on track!. I couldn’t agree more……it’s that “texture” that we all crave (both visual & tactile) in our stitchings—-especially the whole cloth styled pieces! Thanks so much for your visit and sweet comment!!! Hugs……………..
