Doodles

I didn’t get much done sewing wise yesterday. I did start cutting some tiny squares for the little mystery QAL hosted by Lori at Humble Quilts.

I am behind as she has posted the second set of instructions and I haven’t finished the first step! Maybe today after work.

Daughter #3’s BF was over last night and wanted to see how the long arm worked. So I loaded up some fabric so they could have a go and then spent some time playing as well.

It was a good chance to play with some of the threads I got from Superior Threads’ Try Me specials. I also played with a red/white/blue variegated thread from FIL-Tec called Affinity. That was great to work with but what color fabric do you use it on? Not a fan of how the areas where the thread matches the fabric sort of “drops out.”

Linking up with Kelly for Needle and Thread Thursday and Gemma for IQuilt.

    It looks like a lot of fun playing with the long arm! Love seeing what you can do!

    What fun! I used variegated thread on T#1’s quilt, and I have to say that I’m not a fan. Maybe it was the thread I used … it seemed to go from white to dark blue so quickly that it was rather jarring.
