happy monday morning!

i had a busy, productive, wonderful, and sweet weekend! baking… quilting… worship… and football {of course!}  i hope you did too!  i completed a special order for a christmas  runner, and enjoyed my time in the christmas fabric bin.  {now i’d better straighten it out again!}  yikes, but i made a mess, cutting, fusing and trying out different versions of letters, before i settled on these: 


i wanted the quilting to be subtle and blend in, so both the patterned/lettered fabric and the fusible letters would stand out more, so i chose to quilt this with superior’s bottom line polyester 60 weight thread in both top and bobbin.  it was a dream to use.  i don’t often use the lightweight threads in my free motion, as i like the quilting threads to show, but not this time. 

 i switched to king tut thread {40 weight, 10% ELS cotton} for the straight line stitching in the border, and then applied gold and red metallics {the thick threads} like razzle dazzle, couched into the seams with my bernina #39 foot.

 my pictures are not so great ~ one of those low light days,  and it’s really difficult to photograph the color red.  so it goes!

and now to the business at hand… the winner of the posted autumn quilt:  happy cottage quilter!

happy autumn!  thank you~thank you for the wonderful comments.   

enJOY your day!
