Update – looks like I won’t be able to applique these till after Easter weekend. So many things left to do to get ready for the grandchildren. 🙂
I started working on a few applique butterfly blocks (12 to be exact) with some of my favorite batik fabrics. I plan on turning this project into a table runner. Today I will machine applique with my favorite applique stitch, blanket stitch with invisible thread my favorite being Aurifil Invisible Thread. You can also get a 2 pack with light and dark invisible thread here Clear-Aurifil Invisible Thread they will last a very long time. When I finish I will post a picture.
One of the items I use and think I can’t live without are my Bobbini’s Bobbin Holders
Other items I have used in this project of course is my Lite Steam-A-Seam 2
Batik Fabric Layer Cake Primo Batiks by Marcus Fabrics. I am sorry this layer cake is no longer available but there are many other batiks out there that will work for this project. I’ve had this one for a while and loved all the bright colors. I must admit I had no idea at the time what I was going to use it for, can you relate? 🙂
I also use Aurifil 50 wt threads for all my quilting projects. Here is a good beginner pack to check things out for yourself Aurifil 50 wt Quilter’s Super Set. It’s great for 1. Machine piecing: Gives a great result with a nice flat seam every time. 2. Hand piecing : A great weight for hand piecing. 3. Hand applique’ : Ideal for all types of hand applique’ .
I also get some really good deals here on other threads for different projects –Threads and Floss
I will have more info once I complete the project completed.
That’s it for today. Happy Quilting! 🙂
