Stitching Saturday

Today I decided I would allocate a day all to myself. No working on projects for others - only mine - and it was wonderful! I put the final borders on the little Christmas project, quilted and bound it, and finally added the little bows. I think it's kinda cute - and especially love the gold thread I used for quilting - even if I did have a few breakages today.

And next I worked on a few more of my Turning Four-T blocks. I shall have to get a hurry on with these - or I'll have to rename it 'Turned Four-T'. I've got sixteen blocks now, so nine to go and I can start putting it all together.

Tomorrow it's back to quilting like mad - if I'm really good I may get some piecing time in the evening. I'll have my fingers crossed :-)

I always think you do better work for others if you give yourself time too. Enjoy!

It's nice to make something for yourself too, between stuff for others. Your T's are just lovely, and I cannot wait to see the finish!
Your Christmas project looks so beautiful! Love it!
Have a great Sunday too :o)

I tried free motion quilting gold metallic thread on the Christmas quilt I just finished it went well at first and then the thread started breaking.

Was your thread metallic....and do you have any tips????

Me days are very important aren't they? Have you tried a Metafil needle for using gold thread? They eye is different and it reduces the breakage.

cheers

Love the Christmas project, very nice!!

I do love your "T" blocks! That is one that I have on my list to do. Seems like my list keeps getting longer instead of shorter! :)
