Quilt Along Friday

Leah Day started us on a new Journey this year that looks like a great learning experience and lots of fun. Today is FMQ Friday where we share what we worked on this week.


I am adding Hyperquilting to my SewCal Gal. December Challenge. Patsy Thompson loves hyperquilting so I am trying it out. My thread is a Superior metallic variegated, that ranges from copper to silver.

Even closer

It is givimg me subitility that is shiney and quite lovely. Maybe my next hyperquilting adventure will be more bold.

I am going to participate in Leah's 'Express Your Love' project using the panel. Spoonflower says it will take a couple of weeks to get it to me. In the meantime I plan to work on my stack of UFO's and practice Leah's lessons.

  1. Great quilting, love the metallic thread.

  2. Love the use of the metallic thread. I need to use more of it.

  3. The thread/fabric combo is gorgeous with the dimension added in the feather plumes. Looks like an exciting year ahead!-D

  4. I love your fabric! And the FMQ is beautiful!

  5. I love your quilting. I think I might try metallic thread too, now that you have inspired me 😀 Avis x

  6. It looks scary to use metallics… My experience using it on clothes borders is a lot of breaking thread! You really know how to make it work! It looks very good!

    • The thread I used is from Superior Threads, the needle is a #14 topstitch, the top tension was 1.5, and I used Superior’s Bottom Line in the bobbin. Give it a try and see if those things work in your machine.
