I have one more day to meet my goal for my March UFO finish...nothing like cutting it close!!
I finished the Kaleidoscope quilt top last summer and I'm 99% sure that it will be finished before April 1st!
At the beginning of the month, I had fun doodling some possible continuous quilting designs and decided to try this one. It is really fun to sew, and I am tickled that each block turns out a little differently since I am not marking lines or following a traced pattern. I pretend that I am stitching garland on a Christmas tree within each wedge, and when the 8 wedges are quilted, the quilting design for the block looks like a flower.
I finished quilting the 9 inside yellow/green blocks with Mettler "silk finish" thread and LOVED it.
I chose Sulky Blendable thread to quilt the outside 12 blue/green blocks because the colour is perfect, but am having breakage issues again. I know I have whined about this thread before (to read a previous whine click here) but I think I've learned my lesson this time!
We'll see how long my patience lasts! I might have to run out to the store and buy a blue Mettler or Aurifil thread.
