Another day with Kathy

Kathy came over today to quilt another of her quilts – Peppermint & Sassafras.

kdatpantoOriginally she wanted to use my Baptist fan groovy boards, but after trying that out, she decided a pantograph would be easier.

kdpantoShe chose a Super Brite pink thread, a polyester 30 weight thread – and it kept breaking.  We looked up suggested needles and discovered it needed a different needle, which fortunately I had.  Once the right needle was in place, things went pretty well.  Here is the completed quilt.

kdp&sIsn’t it wonderful?  The neon pink thread gives it the sass in Sassafras!

It was a good day in the Quilt Cave with Kathy.  She finished the quilting on her quilt and I made a lot more blocks for my Basket Case quilt.
