Scroll Flower Week #4
I couldn't wait! I started machine quilting the scroll flower on the quilt I spray basted last week. I'm using a variegated 40 weight Superior thread. I am using Bottom Line in the bobbin. I'm very happy with the results!
I was afraid that the spacing would be an issue but it's fine if I keep the stems on the short side.
It's also nice using a variegated thread on different fabrics. The contrast is low and hard to see any problem areas. I think this pattern quilts very quickly also. It's a pleasure to sit down and work up the pattern at a nice pace.
Here's a close up. I'm not sure what I'll be quilting in the borders. I'd like to try something a little different. I'll be linking up to Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures. This is our last linky for this month as well as for the scroll flower. It's been a fun month. Amy is starting something new next month. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us!
P. S. So far the spray basting is working out great! No puckers and no pins to take out. However, I will blog about it once I'm done the entire quilt and really get the quilting going. It's still too early to say much.
Here's my slab table runner. I'm enjoying the process of sewing down the binding. It's a great excuse to watch television! ...
