|Superior Threads Rainbow 821 Carnival variegated thread|
Not only is the quilt top done, but it is quilted. I used a variegated Superior Threads Rainbow (821 Carnival) thread which blended well with all the different colours of the quilt and really popped when it reached the black fabric. I use 80/20 cotton/polyester for the wadding.
|Kiss by Melonie J Caldwell and Patricia Ritter|
In fact I loved the effect of the variegated thread on black so much that I used a black fabric for the backing. Using my long arm quilting machine I stitched out a digital pantograph, Kiss by Melonie J Caldwell and Patricia Ritter. There were so many different patterns I could have chosen for this quilt, each giving a different look.
