It's amazing what you can accomplish when you set a deadline for yourself! My class sample for the Lemoyne Star is quilted and bound and off to the quilt shop today--whew!
|To meet my deadline, I just quilted an overall Cinnamon roll pattern.|
It went pretty quickly!
|I used my lucky Aurifil # 2150 orange thread and I love the way it looks on this quilt.|
I tested several other colors by "puddling" them on the quilt top and the orange won!
|Surprisingly, the orange didn't seem to overwhelm the light areas or look too light on the dark areas. Also, my machine loves Aurifil thread--I seem to get a much nicer stitch when I use it.|
And I love these little 3" stars!
