Now and then I’m breaking away from the actual quilt piece to practice putting fabrics together and stitch applique edges. I like a more active sky background with a sparkling print effect rather than a plainer, more subtle texture for the sky. The stitches I practiced using with different threads are the blanket stitch, zig zag and another decorative stitch.
Since my fabric pieces are so small, I’ve decided to use invisible thread and a simple zig zag stitch. I want the fabrics to take center stage, not their edges. (If I don’t want the needle holes I could switch needles, but I don’t mind them in this case.) Note the “wonky” window that helps to say, “this is a playful piece!”
In my city scenes I find myself imagining which building houses my studio/home. Spotted it! I’m up late sewing tonight and the light is on!
