Leave links to your project posts or to quilt blog posts that have caught your interest in the comments box at the end of this post.
First of all I will share with you my unusual game of ‘thread chicken’. Instead of the usual game of dare – will the top thread/bobbin last for just one more line of stitching? – I’ve been holding my breath and keeping a close eye on a knot hoping that it won’t end up causing a tangle through my machine’s tension plates or get caught in the needle as I’m stitching! Thankfully I completed stitching details on the quilt before the knot came into play!
I and my Pfaff machine get on very well with Aurifil cotton threads which I’m convinced are of very good quality. This is the first time I’ve encountered a knotted join in a reel of Aurifil 🙁
