Beat the Heat
for Jenny's two shocking pink and navy batik quilts.
I had to wait for the temperature to drop before I could venture up into the loft to resume work, but I have just pulled a 10 hour stint and finished this one today.
The thread is a trilobal 40wt polyester from Superior Threads and is variegated from light pink to cerise with a beautiful sheen on it.
The stitching went very smoothly on the whole, with only a couple of breaks. When I did need to unpick a little, the thread separated and it was tricky to remove, unlike the cottons I usually use. Good to know for future projects.
The all over quilting design was inspired by one of the floral prints - not a batik but the same weight cotton - which was just gorgeous!
I really got my 'Pink Fix' this time and I can't wait to start on the second one!
Happy Quilting Everyone!
