Monday, July 25

Working hard on the NY Beauty today.  The couching is done, using a sparkly multi colored lightweight yarn.  Machine embroidery is coming along, but placed on hold for the rest of today because I ran out of black bobbin thread.  Will pick that up tomorrow and hope to finish the quilt by weeks end.  I did a close up trying to show the couching, but it is still hard to see.  Now I am off to set up machine for some free motion work, which is how I will quilt the spikes.

  1. Very pretty! Is the couching something that does quilting at the same time, or do you do it on just the flimsy and then the quilting comes later? I've never done couching and I'm very interested in trying it out.
