Next up……a departure………….

Doing  a couple of small client wall-quilts. They are cute little landscape/picture quilts that are quite heavily fused so I’m trying these new-to-me needles to combat the possibility of a gummy needle and thread breakage. So far, they are awesome!!!! IMG_1652 Also, I’m not a huge fan of “invisible” thread but the number of color changes in these pieces really called for its usage. I opted for my fave product: IMG_1650 They are poly (as opposed to nylon, which has a low melting temperature…..think ironing) and the shine is a bit less. A peek at this current process………….  IMG_1651 IMG_1653 IMG_1655 IMG_1657

I hope your week is going well. The days seem to fly by!!!!

    That looks like it will be just adorable! Looking forward to seeing the finish. :0)

  2. Thanks. I added it to my notes as I make landscapes at times also. Try to stay away from the invisible monofilament because of the shine. More noticeable with certain fabrics. Good tip
