Still Playing day 2

Well I worked on this new piece most of the day yesterday. I added some more hills in the background, change the moon, made the trees on the left smaller and took out the red house.  I started quilting it and here it is so far. I ripped out some quilting I didn’t like -it wasn’t so hard! -Sometimes I will give up on a project if it’s not working, but I am going to keep going and quilt the sky next.  I’m learning a lot from this piece and I am pretty happy with the way this is turning out.

Can you tell me what kind of thread you like to use for machine quilting?day2

I just found out that you can’t get steam a seam anymore! Anyone out there have any suggestions what to use instead?

    Hi Marjorie,

  2. Laura Wasilowski recommends Pellon WonderUnder 805R. I like it better than Steam-A-Seam, and it comes in a roll. I use whatever color thread works best for the piece regardless of content. Sometimes that means I have to quilt very slowly, or for only a few minutes at a time, but that’s a small price to pay for the exact right shade.

      Hi Lani Thanks for commenting. I just got some wonder under and I can’t wait to try it. Also ordered mistyfuse. Seems like each has its own use. I am changing colors a lot with the big piece I’m quilting, and I agree that getting the right color is worth it.
