Although it seemed like forever, I really enjoyed putting these blocks together, the seams nested beautifully and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The next step is to create the scrappy sashing which will be 2″ x 2″ blocks sewn together using 2 1/2″ strips, there are also two borders on this quilt. I’ve ordered the fabric to finish this quilt so there won’t be any delays. I still haven’t received the backing fabric for my Fleurs Bleu quilt which I ordered awhile ago.You can see April’s original Parcheesie quilt here.
As mentioned at the beginning of this project, I was going to use Mettler 50wt thread but I instantly found it too thick, like Gutermann so I switched back to Aurifil. I have some Superior Thread’s Kimono Silk and So Fine threads on their way to me, hopefully I won’t have to wait too long.
Which thread do you use??
