So next up is MARKING the quilt top for this quilt to be...
Well I finished that up Valentine's Day morning ....
Here is what me and my dd woke too...
I got the chocolate that is a tradition for me and my honey >>>>>>
<<<<<<<<My dd got candy, chocolate AND a balloon too! Thanks to my honey and me :)
So now with all the marking done and Valentine's being enjoyed my honey kindly offered to help with the pinning process... he knows it is my least favorite part but vitally important to a nice square quilt in the end :)
Here is a close up I took during pinning of the cross hatched center I am just finishing and again you can see the light white lines here better for the orange peel design in this border.. I will be using Perle 12 cotton for that in white as well :)
Thread wise I am using YLI 40/3 in white for all the charm square cross hatching... I am using perle 12 cotton in white on the raspberry border and a gorgeous raspberry thread I shared in my delivery shot from yesterday... my fave for hand quilting... Aurifil 28/2.
Do you have fave things you use when hand quilting?I love thread so much my honey is making me a storage case for all my thread... I don't have a ton of it.. but I think I will! lol
Today I am linking this hand quilty blog post to Kathy's Quilts .. Slow Stitching Sunday as she encourages us to share hand quilting!
