I was filling a bobbin with invisible thread (monofilament poly) and when I was done, I heard a pop. The top part of the bobbin blew off! That's a new one. This was the result:
I tried to salvage the thread...thinking I could just rewind it onto another bobbin, but it wasn't happening and instead tangling into a mess. And of course I haven't thrown it away thinking it has some art potential!
I finished another couple of quilts, and am on target to have six by Wednesday. This is the appliqued top from Sherry. I used So Fine on top and this is my first time, as far as I can remember, using it. I can see why some professionals use it so much. Although I quilted pretty densely, it is a light thread and didn't make the little quilt stiff. Added a lot of texture without overpowering the applique.
I didn't notice until I took a close-up picture that the little clover block lost it's brown center in the wash. I used fusible and machine stitched another center for it.
Pat M. had given this to us a while back, and I got it finished up. It's such a bright, cheerful quilt! Thanks friends for all the help!
