Finished My Bargello Quilt, I Just Love The Accent Embroideries!

I finished it and it is currently in the washing machine. I’m so excited for the way it turned out. The Wonderfil thread I’m using is super awesome! Their variegated colors are just to die for! I think it has quite a bit of movement, and the embroideries just make it pop! I used a bright blue flannel for the backing as well as the binding, and I think it is just perfect! I just have to schedule the class for this fun quilt at work! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to a commission quilt.

I Got Some New Embroidery Thread… It’s Variegated!

So we started carrying a new thread at the shop I work at, and they have this line called ‘Mirage’ and it is all randomly dyed variegated thread, so it is very blend-able. I bought more, but I haven’t had the chance to do anything with it yet. I was kind of skeptical because it was rayon, and I’m not a huge fan of rayon thread, but it holds up quite nicely after being washed, so I broke down and bought some! I’m not sure what I’m going to do with these fun new variegated threads, but I’ll figure something out!
