Houston Start up

A Quick note on How to leave your family for a week and enjoy the Houston International Quilt Festival.

For me I cook. Making sure they are well fed makes me feel no guilt to be feeding my own appetite for Quilting.

Smoked brisket, marinate for 2 days. 10 hrs in the smoker, slice and enjoy. 

That should hold them for the week.

Juki Style

What a treasure the MO-103. Patrice shared her faithful sidekick, they have created Lycra bathing suits, alpaca golf sweaters, velour robes, countless T-shirts, and a million miles of cotton quilt fabric edges for unfrayed washed edges!


My treasure, well…The MO-2000.  Can’t beat easy air threading and an LCD screen that quickly shows me settings for 15 different stitches.  20160103_154033

Thread Audition

And the Winner is …wp-1462286022820.jpg

…I used the one on the left.  ( at least for me)   I first thought I would use the one in the center but I quilted a Mermaid design with Robotics over each star.

The one on the Right I felt was too dark,  It would have taken away from the star design by showing up in the background area too strongly.

The light grey in the center was just the opposite.  It looked great in the background areas But in the dark areas it looked almost white in places which was not what I wanted or liked.

The one on the left was a light variegated.  It blended well over both the dark and the light not standing out anywhere so it did not detract from the star design.

What I did do… was put a very dark variegated in the bobbin.  The Quilt has a light mottled backing and I wanted the Quilt Design to show up for everyone to see.

I had to balance that tension perfectly.

Stay tuned for my border designs and finished pics of the Quilt.


Thread Audition


When preparing to quilt, I audition threads before starting. 

Which one would you choose? 

I will update you on the outcome !!
