In the past I have followed blogs that have FMQ-alongs or lessons or a swift kick in my bottom to get me thinking along those lines.  I almost have nightmares just thinking about pulling the stitches out of this quilt for several months, so I decided that I needed to use this opportunity to test out some things.  One of those items was of course the stitches, the second was that I decided to finally break down and try Aurifil thread.  I picked up a couple rolls of it from my local quilt ship a few months ago, one roll in white, one roll in light yellow.  I am using the light yellow here, but honestly you cannot tell.  I will give you my final thoughts on the product when I finish top-stitching/FMQ testing it!

  1. I LOVE the pebbles. It is a technique that I really want to try. I like the Aurifil because of the small amount of lint that is left behind. I'll be interested in what you think. Are you using it in the bobbin too?

    1. I am using it in the bobbin as well, I like using the same thread in both when sewing.


I love to hear from my readers!
