It’s coming together!
I’ve added the backing fabric and I’m sewing around each letter. I’ve decided to use Double Threads through the needle as I wanted a variegated effect, but as most of the threads change colours unevenly or too evenly, I prefer using 2 threads through the needle.
I really like the thickness and texture that this provides.
I will be threading the ends in so until them I end up with a birds nest!
Threading in gives the quilt a much better look and feel, which is perhaps not visible to the eye, but it seems better constructed.
I use a needle with an open end, an easy threading needle which allows me to slot the threads in rather than threading them through the eye.
