Two simple pieced strips using some charm squares made this quilt back a winner for me.
It was while quilting this darling lap quilt (I'd show you some close up shots of the fabric range 'Get A Clue With Nancy Drew' but I have already accidentally deleted photos trying to format this post on my ipad. Luckily I'm not trying to do anything fancy!) that I discovered that my machine loves cheap cotton (that is by no means any reflection on me!). I usually use Aurifil thread but didn't have any in blue. I didn't want to stop my assembly line, so with nothing to lose I whacked the cheapo thread in and - with great delight - quilted away without any problems.
While here in the US I'm hoping to pick up some Isacord polyester thread that Leah Day recommends.
So, are you a Nancy Drew fan? Zoe and I love the earlier editions with the beautiful illustrations.
