Blockheads Week #28Jan's Pumpkin block has arrived just in time for fall. Kathy made her block with cotton prints, while Joy made her block out of wool stitching the pumpkin ridge details. Customize your pumpkin to suit your quilt.
Find Jan's Pumpkin Block #28 on her blog.
Question of the Week: Do you have any machine quilting tips?Ok, this is a question I can relate to. (Hand quilting, not so much.) I quilt small projects on my Bernina like Mini Table Treats and pillow toppers and runners. Otherwise, Joy quilts almost everything else. She's better at it and I usually don't have the time. To make my machine quilting look better, I use Aurifil 50wt. thread in a matching color with a size 60/8 needle. It's a little challenging to thread a needle that size, but when stitching in the ditch, it makes all the difference. My stitches virtually disappear! Try it sometime and let me know what you think.
I've been traveling more than I've been home the past month so keeping these posts short and to the point. See you next week!
