quilting is organic straight line
The colors in this sweetwater line are very similar to their "reunion" line, remember those fabrics? tanner reunion, reunion at midnight and raggy squares, yea, I think we all went a little crazy on that line. I still have a dresser full of it, for the future :)
Several posts ago, I talked about a new binding method. My quilting friend, Christine, introduced me to this new modern look.
This quilt is bound in turquoise, very similar to the binding color. Either the contrast or the same color thread look nice . . . home made.
(I used those surgical scissors this week to pull out stitches, eek! . . . purchased at market)
even with a thimble, I still feel like I need to use these for gripping the needle. I wear them on my thumb and index finger and the thimble on my middle finger. That's just my preference, it's so individual.
Have you seen these darling tulip packages in the quilting stores? their marketing is brilliant . . . them and Target.
They have a large eye, they're warp resistant an run smoothly through the fabric.
