A Quilt Along ...
Here are all the cream blocks on which I am going to sew the "flowers".
I also have cut out the corner stones and setting strips.
I am trying to use as much pale pink, soft green and cream as possible.
The actual color for the setting strips is "Baby Pink"
I am using a button hole stitch on my sewing machine and a very pastel variegated thread by Mettler. It is a cotton that has a silk finish which means the thread is shiny and when sewn it brings a lovely sheen to the work.
I have also just purchased two reels of variegated thread by Signature, it is called "Pastels" and has a lovely variation of pinks, green, cream with a little bit of mauve and lemon.
This will go well with the quilt.
I purchased it online as I only have a Spotlight and Lincraft stores locally neither of which sell these sort of quilting threads.
I bought it from Patchwork Promises.
Well not a lot of exciting cooking was done over the weekend as I was busy, so it was quick meals like toasted sandwiches and chicken stirfry.
So till tomorrow I had better get back to the sewing machine.
