I had my Intrepid Thread challenge piece all done and the blog post written when I realized the big reveal isn’t until January! I had this QOV loaded and needing a Friday finish was just the motivation I needed to get it done last night.
See this white on white fabric?
Every time I hit this, the top thread jumped out of the tension discs. Every time. You see these fabrics have the design applied like paint. It sits on top of the fabric instead of soaking into the fibers like dye. It feels rubbery. When the needle hit that, it grabbed onto the thread and pulled it right out of the discs. This isn’t the piecer’s fault. But it was very frustrating. I stopped and ripped on every row.
Here is a look at the back.
I’m so glad this one is done! What have you finished this week?
