Do you remember when we made this? I noted that a few of you tried it and perhaps I didn't make myself clear....but I did not use the #12 pearle cotton thread on that quilt, but instead when I do something this intricate I use #30 weight thread. It is a bit thicker than regular sewing cotton, but no where near as thick as the pearle cotton. Besides, when I used the pearle cotton, I had to hide all my ends (quite a pain in the neck if you ask me), whereas with the #30, if you're careful and go up and down lots when starting and stopping, you can cut off your ends.
Well, anyway, I made two more to show you.
Note how different they look with the different colors and quilting. I thought #3 was pretty cool, until I got out #1 and #2 and realized that they were much brighter. Where was I on #3 Mandala day anyway? Usually I only grab the bright crayons.......ummmmmm????
I think I'm done with these now..........at least for awhile. My next move will be to design my own coloring quilt of shapes.....what do you think of that?????? (I'm thinking it'll probably be an after Christmas project though....eikes.....too much to do before then.)
