To have a visual record of the samples I'll make during the journey through Threads- The basics and beyond, it is recommended to make little quiltlets. These comprise fabric, batting and a stabilizer. When the technique is done, pairs of the quiltlets are joined together back to back. I'm looking forward to trying the various edging techniques.
I can get quite stalled trying to coordinate colours and much as I enjoy that, this is about thread techniques not Art. So I decided to precut 6 inch squares from my black stash and I'll let the thread colours be the colour design element. I am using Pellon stabilizer to begin with and a strip of warm and natural batting that is in the leftover pile.I'm thinking 40 squares of fabrics should do it. I found a nice box and that determines my finished size, 5" x 6".
That is as far as I got. No excuses. Life just happens.
I have been doing some machine quilting. My thoughts on the walking foot and the stitch regulator are here.
