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.
