I hope your weekend was spent with needle and thread.

Lynn pointed me to this blog who had recently posted about quilting through stitchery and how anitque quilts have been done in the simple cross hatch quilting. A few comments mentioned invisible thread (invisible thread and I don't get along) which gave me the idea of using InvisaFil thread by WonderFil. The InvisaFil is very fine, almost like silk thread which is what I needed to have the thread blend with both the white background and the red. I used a light beige InvisaFil on top and a cotton thread in the bobbin. Sorry about the blurry picture, I must have gotten a little too close for the camera to handle, you get the idea. It's so great to have a whole world of quilting bloggers to ask for help, thanks again to all of you!!
