Look what's arrived!

My Aurifil thread has arrived....


This is the first time that I ordered thread over the Internet...usually I buy it at a shop in the city, however their selection is limited. Was a bit sceptical on how well I would be able to match the colours to the Wholecloth quilt this is intended for.

Must say, I am very happy with this...the colour selection is good and should blend well into the background.

A bit of a trial....

Now I don't know which colour to choose for my Wholecloth quilt. The darker colour is a slightly different tone to the fabric...

in fact, have not decided exactly how to quilt the background, whether to just microstipple or choose a different kind of design.

Decisions, decisions...!











Seems like an awfully big area to microstipple...should have really thought that through a bit better.
