just a thought....

Creating quilts is a way of expressing my creativity. I love the process of dreaming what a new project might look like once it is done and watching my vision come to reality.

Using varigated thread for interest

I was looking for a thread to quilt Rosie's arm. I started picking up all different threads. The one that looked kind of like a skin tone to me was this one.
The surprising part about this is that it is a varigated thread made up of mauve and yellow.
I almost didn't buy it. Then I decided it may add interest to the quilt. From far her arm will just look like skin tone. Only upon close inspection will you be able to see that is a varigated thread made of mauve and yellow.
Here is my work so far. Now take a look up close. See if you can pick out the mauve and yellow.
