Now that my Black Eyed Susan quilt is done, I wanted to move on. My next project is the Precious Moments Noahs Ark Quilt panel. I thought it would be easy to quilt. Unfortunately, its proving to be a challenge. So, I have deicded to hand quilt it. Now, that would be great...but I'm not using the correct thread. I'm using a machine quilting thread. I wonder if this is going to cause an issue in the end? The only thing it's causing me now is heartburn - using anything but hand-quilting thread is NOT fun. It tangles easily and gets caught up in knots. What a pain in the butt.
Tomorrow I'm going to a quilt shop - I'll check there for thread, and if they don't have it, maybe I can check at the local WM to see if they have some hand-quilting thread that will match what I've been using. I want this quilt to be special and to be together for years, so I guess I should be doing it correctly.
As I mentioned, I'm going to a local quilt shop and I'm going to take some of my recent completed projects. This is because they do a show and tell. We'll see how that works out.....
Anyway, thats my update for now. I need to take photos of the quilt so I can show it in progress......so photos to come!
Off to get dinner ready.
