I was sorry to learn that she didn't feel welcome in her first quilting class. I know you would have made her feel included if you had been the first to meet her! :)

This is not why you won but it is one of the nicest things to be said about me!
Thank you for such a nice comment!

I forgot to post this but not to notify the winner and mail it!

Wanna Win some Aurifil Thread

The Aurifil Thread Giveaway ends on August 26, 2014 enterHERE

My work in progress or WIP
for this Wednesday (I know today is Tuesday)
is hand quilting this mini quilt!

I am hand quilting the Flowering Snowball Mini
with Aurifil 12 wt. Thread using
#2021 Natural White!

As you look at the colors in this quilt
you can see I could have used a variety of colors
if I wanted the quilting to be the main focus
but I didn't in this case.

By using the white you see the beautiful sheen
off the white but it blends with the white fabric.

Aurifil 12 wt. threads are an excellent way of
adding decorative stitches to projects
and hand quilting.

I love the look of how it makes
the quilting pattern stand out
without taking away from the
overall appearance of the quilt.

Thank you for stopping by to look around!
Create and be unique!

The Giveaway of (2) 12 wt spools of thread is provided by Aurifil. Please visit our sponsor sales links provided below when you need a new spool.

The other day when I was looking at the Aurifl site and I found this tidbit Aurifil 12 wt Embellishment and Sashiko dreams! I began to experiment with the machine settings, needles, threads and loved the texture of the heavier thread stitched with a sewing machine.

Here is what I did to create this look!

I used these setting on my new Juki Exceed Home DecorHZL-F300that my wonderful hubby bought me for Christmas. What a killer deal that was and better left for another time.

Changed the needle to a 100/16…
