Well, I didn't exactly finish a quilt this week, but I did finish piecing this top - so I'm counting it for Sew and Tell Friday! This is another quilt for my daughter to auction at the silent auction to raise funds for her adoption - the second one of (hopefully) four!
Many thanks to Ashley at Film In The Fridge for the inspiration for this quilt - her mini spring quilt is beautiful and caught my eye and my daughter's!
A funny story - when my husband saw this top, he said, "Wow - - - that's - - a lot of white...." When my daughter saw it, she said, "Wow!!! That's a lot of white!!!" Can you tell which one liked the white?
I'm working on a beautiful pastel disappearing nine-patch quilt right now - hopefully I'll have pictures next week. I don't usually like pastels, but this one is very sweet and feminine. I'll be interested to see how it comes out.
Here's a question for you all - have you ever quilted with shiny thread? Is it difficult? Does it add a neat dimension, or is is not worth the hassle? I'd love to hear your thoughts.....
