In Progress: My Last Shop Sample
I've been working more at the shop lately and I got suckered in was asked to make one more shop sample. Friday night I cut the 2 1/2 inch strips, Saturday evening I cut them into their proper lengths, and today I made the quilt top. The pattern is "Texas Pride" by Gone Quiltin'. I still have to applique the star and of course, quilt it. I'm thinking just an overall wavy grid design. I'm going to try out Aurifil's invisible thread for the first time. I've read that it can be used in the bobbin as well so I'll let ya'll know how it turns out. Here's the top on my design wall.
I have to cut the kits tomorrow at the shop, but I hope to have my quilt finished by the end of the week. That's the plan anyway. We'll see how it goes!
