I am working away on the Boys Story Quilt by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. I bought the book and let my son, Josh, choose the quilt he wanted (he's 11). I was pleased this was the one he picked because it was my favourite too! I started in January this year and have just completed the 13 stitcheries so I am now working on the first applique block. This is the first time I have tried needle-turn applique so it is a new experience for me.
If anyone reads this entry, I would be interested if there is a specific thread you should use for the needle-turn applique? I wondered if it would be ok to use 1 strand of the DMC thread so I have lots of colour choices to match the fabric?
I had always read in blogs about the lovely comments people leave and it is so true and so encouraging. A big thank you to those who have left comments already!
