Little Autumn Mums

Started quilting on the Little Autumn Mums quilt. I am taking it slow and really enjoying the process. Most times I am in such a hurry to quilt something to see how it is going to look. I get tired and sometimes hurry a quilting design. This time I have not had large blocks of time so quilt a little when I have a chance.

I I used the Rayon thread on the flower petals and the centers of the three mums. I did have to lower the tension quite a bit on the top Rayon thread and tightened the bobbin thread a little too. I am using Bottom Line for the bottom thread on this quilt. I used a topsitich needle and it all seemed to work fine. Really like the shine the thread has. Now to think of what I want to quilt on the other areas of the quilt.

Stay tuned for more quilting.

I love what you are doing with this quilt. Love the colors and the way you are quilting it. Is this raw edge applique?

Love those colors. Makes me want to dig into the tote of hand-dyes.

Yes, this is raw edge everything. The entire quilt is fused. A very freeing method for me.
