Linda has trusted the Bears this time with not one, but two, king size quilts. Both will be delivered to Thimble Pleasures this Friday July 15th. The first one is a quilt that was made on a retreat. It's totally gorgeous, with appliqued
baskets stealing the show. There's so much going on here that we felt custom quilting would be completely lost. Not only that, we felt it would actually take away. So instead, we chose a beautiful feather overall design. Thread choice is critical in that it needs to blend everywhere. All we're shooting for is a whole lotta' texture. Superior Threads Sew Fine #402 came through.

|Yes, it IS ok to quilt right over those appliqued handles! See what I mean? Imagine if you quilted those baskets, and then oh so carefully outlined the handles. Waayyy too much. Click or double click on any image for more detail.|
