Today I finished a pair of Oregon State University quilts for my customer. They were both the same pattern and size. One had a pink camo backing fabric and the other had a green camo backing fabric.
My customer requested simple pantographs on each, with designs that were not too busy to avoid cluttering up the theme.
Each quilt needed to have white thread on top, and a matching thread for the backing in the bobbin. So of course I went to my huge stash of Aurifil cotton thread. This time, though, I paired them up with the same weight on top as in the bobbin. Just for kicks.
Aurifil 40 wt. Cotton
#2021 and #4173
Aurifil 50 wt. Cotton
#2021 and #3660
The tension was wonderful on both quilts.
Up next is this darling baby quilt, which will be getting a custom treatment:
My customer has requested SID throughout, with a simple border.
Aren't those green frog cornerstones adorable?
To appease my knees, I have reorganized my pantographs. They were previously stored at the bottom of this shelf, in the long clear plastic bin. But I switched them to the middle shelf, separated into 3 bins:
This is way easier to use now!
There is only one problem though.
What will happen if I buy a new pantograph that starts with the letter "I"??
