I am contemplating what quilting to do on the Kathy Schmitz calendar blocks. I am using the blue print as the back so I first have to select thread. I recently read a blurb from Superior about monopoly and BottomLine thread. I know that the monopoly has a sheen that one can find objectionable while BottomLine comes in many colors that can blend when you do not want the stitching to show up. I had a Masterpiece blue and a BottomLine blue that I potentially would use. I was having tension issues when I was piecing with a combo of Masterpiece and Bottom line to create the block so I decided to use a beige BottomLine on the top and a blue in the bottom.
I think the combo worked very well.
I stitched using the number 37 foot and the feed dogs engaged. I stitched around the snowman, next to the running stitches on the clock, around the house and the large bird. On to another month.
