playing with scraps and thread

it's blog day!

and i've been playing with scraps and thread the last couple of days.
it's been fun!
and i feel the satisfaction of using scraps up.
here's a sneak peek...




i've had these aurifil threads in my thread box for ages and decided to use them on my home machine while the big machine is humming away.

so far i've got five little pieces waiting to be hand bound and one that i'll be quilting today.
it's been a fun experience...
with no expectation of where it's going to go.
certainly a fun way to let the creative juices flow.

and with the strange weather we've had (thunder, two hailstorms and  a lot of rain) we've been inside a lot.
good excuse to sew!

here's what's been on the frame these last two weeks...

Carla's Dr. Seuss quilt...quilted with Dainty pantograph in a light green thread

Carla's rail fence quilt...quilted with Bangkok pantograph in a light gray thread

Carla's birthday cake table runner...quilted with Rock 'n Roll Stars pantograph in a light variegated purple thread
