October's Free Motion Quilting Challenge


This months teacher for the Sew Cal Gal's Free Motion Challenge is Teri Lucas.  She wanted us to use different threads and needles.  Since I a using only neon threads on this quilt, my choices were limited.   I used some Madiera thread, and from Superior Threads some of the Brytes, New Brytes, Natures Color and some Rainbow Threads and I just bought some Connecting Threads spools and wanted to try those too.  they are pretty thick and I bought them to use when I raw edge applique with the buttonhole stitch.  Plus the prices are great.  It quilted nicely and if you really want your threads to show, this is the thread to use.

On a personal quilting note, I finished machine quilted the HST quilt and have the binding on - with 3 more sides to hand sew down and a label.  I will work more on the binding after I post this blog and watch part two of the Ken Follet's World Without End series on Reelz.  Loved the books.  Love Ken Follet's books.

Anyway, thanks for looking.

Thanks for the tips on the thread. I haven't tried the thicker threads as of yet, but have been mulling the notion around in my head. YOUR stitching just keeps getting better and better!

Great job on this tutorial! I like all the thread colors - really makes the designs pop.
