March Progress on 18 in 2018

This is my last update for March on my 18 in 2018 list. My original post can be found here.
First up is my Red and Cream Mystery BOM quilt from Fig Tree Quilts (#8 on my list). I am getting very close to finishing the quilting on this. I have one row left to finish. Here are some detail pics.



 I decided to use red thread (Ruby Glide) in the center star only. All other areas are cream Glide.

 Lots of feathers. They don't show at all in the checked fabric.

Next, is the Pumpkin Patch Lane BOM quilt. This is # 18 on my 18 in 2018 list. I solved the issue about bobbin thread being pulled to the top. I heard Edyta Sitar say that she always uses a Microtex 70 needle with monofilament thread.  That did the trick. I had the upper tension at zero.


I have one more pieced border to complete. This is a very cute project.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. LOVE the feathers - and your Pumpkin Patch Lane. Glad your tension "fix" was as simple as changing the needle - ;))
