I got so frustrated on a quilt that I am quilting, that I set it aside and made this faded color wheel.
The material was left overs from my Tea Time for You & Me tea party set that I made for Moda's Bake Shop.
If you like the material of the color wheel you can find it in the sale section of the Fat Quarter Shop, its California Girls by Fig Tree for Moda.
And this lovely is the quilt that has me frustrated.
I heard on a popular pod cast one day: so as long as you have your quilt basted right, it does not matter where you start quilting it.
I guess I kind of beg the differ on this one.
Between the weight of this quilt and the thread snapping every two inches is just driving me crazy.
Someone did ask me if it were the tension of my machine and sorry to say that no it is not cause my machine auto adjust as I go along.
Not to mention the material is full of glitter and it is driving my machine nuts.
I eventually pulled out all the pretty stitching that I had on it, and I am going to start over with straight line stitching just to get the blessed quilt done.
As for the thread I come to the conclusion of using Gutterman for piecing and then use Aurifil for quilting.
My Gutterman keeps snapping and fraying while I am quilting, and I have heard from others of this commonly happens and many others use the same method in thread change up, I am actually looking forward to doing the same.
On other fronts, I changed my blog header (thanks to PicMonkey) for the Halloween season!
I love it and it was so much fun to put together!
