Hello everyone! A quick and simple share for this Windy Wednesday.
I'm stitching away a 7" x 7" mini quilt to be donated to our local Council on the Arts for their 2nd annual "Artfully Squared" event. The council collects and display hundreds of 7" x 7" pieces of art from local artists. The work is on display for the month of April and each piece is available to purchase for $20. All proceeds benefit the Arts Council. It's a great event and I'm excited to participate this year -- just need to add some quilting to this "little" guy...
Aurifil Threads I had my hand at using their 28wt thread to stitch the bird and the stems. Oh what a JOY!!..
I used a double strand of Aurifil Mako Cotton 28Wt to blanket stitch the wren and stems by hand and I enjoyed every stitch of it. The thread glides through fabric and wool just beautifully. Insert Happy Dance here!!
I have other Aurifil products to try including their Lana Wool and Mako Cotton 12Wt - keep an eye out for my feedback/review on those threads ;)
Linking to bunches of parties today -- if you have a need for inspiration -- just hop around and see who's linking what -- ALWAYS a tremendous amount of beautiful projects and tutorials to view!
