Got Thread?

I had lots of fun sewing this little spools wall hanging.  I bought this kit from Stitching on State in Hampshire  All of the fabric was included in a paper bag, along with a pattern by Snap Sack.  I really liked the colors and also that it was a small project.  It is approx. 16" x 18" finished.  It is the perfect size to put over my cutting table.

Of course, I needed to change it up a little bit.  Instead of a plain border, I decided to add cornerstones with embroideries of sewing notions.  Such fun!  I had to make the sewing machine purple since I have a purple Pfaff Creative Performance which I love!

I wanted to show you a close up of my quilting.  I used a 3 step zigzag stitch and adjusted it until I got a serpentine looking stitch.  I really like it.  It adds some soft curves to an otherwise very geometric quilt.

This quilt just makes me smile!  Hope you get a chance to make something that makes you smile too!

Happy Sewing,
