Well the star burst center of the Singer Banner got all finished by Wednesday :)
I had used Aurifil 28/2 in black for the star burst but I wanted more for the chain border... so I used DMC Perle 12 Cotton and big stitch style hand quilting...
But check out when all four threads are in place...
I chose to use wool batting for this project that I ironed carefully to make flat during the bagging adventure... it is really looking nice n puffy now though :)
Here is a close up of the chain detail...
So I am about 1/3 way around this and then I will go back with a gray thread and quilt the little areas above and below the medallion as well :) I just wanted the edges to lay nice and flat so starting with them.
Also I got a wonderful Thank You card from a great bloggy friend Deb!
Isn't this a lovely card!!!
Her personal message was from her and her daughter who I gifted some quilty things to add to her young stash ;) How sweet was that! Made my day for sure :)
Do you send or receive thank you notes for just being yourself? I love it when that happens... let's me know I must be doing SOMETHING right! lol I rarely feel that way so this thank you not really helped me be thankful as well!
What are you thankful for? I am currently very thankful the heater near my feet is working well... instead of hot flashes I am getting cold flashes during this time in my life! lol
I am also VERY thankful my bestie got me into quilting :)
I will be changing gears on Kaydence's quilt... more to come on that on Sunday's post ;)
I am linking this post to Kelly's Needle and Thread Thursday HERE
I will be whooping my thankfulness with Sarah for her Friday Whoop Linky HERE
Until next time...
