This wall hanging is going to have quite a lot of hand quilting. Am liking the way it's turning out. Thread used is Coats Button Craft extra strong thread. I like to use very long lengths (about a yard long) of thread and take the time to wax my threads using beeswax and then ironing the excess off. We're not supposed to use thread that long, but that is the way I like to do it. :o) I do so hate having to knot off and start a new thread right in the middle of an open area. The bonus is my threads don't tangle from the beeswax and my quilting really shows up well because of the heavier thread.
There are a number of bloggers that use Perle Cotton thread for quilting. This, I will have to give a try to see which I prefer.
Is there something missing for this wall hanging? Yes, it's not complete ... yet! You will have to wait until the end to see what it will finally look like.
So far today, I've made a batch of fat-free hummus and this afternoon I will make a cherry cheesecake (fat-free of course)! Ugh, you say! Actually, it's quite good or maybe it's because we have been eating low-fat for so long (about 10 yrs. now) that the food does taste good! LOL
Have a great day!
