Can you believe that in just about 9 days I received a quilt top ready to quilt and beautifully appliqued...
Made my quilt sandwich
Basted it together with safety pins...
And completely quilted all the background blocks and the dolphins :)
Now I am using a thicker decorative thread called perle cotton in a size 12. Some hand quilters use as big as a size 8... but I couldn't find any that size and I think this size suits my needs perfectly. I chose a light gray to coordinate with the gray embroidery on the dolphins :)
Hope you come join me over at Patchwork Friends on facebook! I would love to chat with you more candidly about quilting :)
Have a blessed day!
