Midweek Makers #65

Here we are again, with another edition of Midweek Makers! 



I've started the quilting process for Santorini, and have zig-zagged the edges with invisible thread.



Some of the stitching can be seen, as on the right, while in other areas it's completely invisible. I had to check the back to make sure I had stitched around the window with the bars. Now it's on to batting and backing. Eventually, I'll write a post about what I learned quilting this piece.

Last week, there were three projects that were the most viewed. These were:

Postage Stamp quilt made by Karen at Quilts Etc

                                         IMG_1688

Leaf painting by Donnalee at DonnaleeQ

                                         

and Orange Peels by Sandra at Quilting at the Cro's Nest

                                         
You ladies rock! Be sure to grab a 'Featured' button for these awesome projects!

  1. I've used invisible thread a few times when quilting, and it's been a love/hate relationship but more on the love side than hate. I can't wait to read about your experience with it. Honestly, it had never occurred to me to use it for applique.

    1. I didn't use to be a fan of it either. The shine was always something that bothered me. But, as with other quilting techniques (specifically machine stitched binding), I learned to let go of old prejudices. Currently, I use Sulky polyester with a 8/60 or 10/70 needle and a small zigzag, 1.5 length 1.5 width. Been pretty happy with the results.

  4. That Santorini quilt is going to be spectacular. I've used Invisible with great success for appliqué when there are a ton of different colours of fabric. I also saw Sandra's orange peel quilt!
