Stacked Coin Quilt in Progress
I am working on a stacked coin quilt, using the Snippets charm pack, actually I used two full charm packs for this. I used Kona cotton in white (I think it's called snow) on the front and Kona premium muslin for the back. The premium muslin is to die for. It's so soft and silky and was $9.00/yd (but was 108" wide as well). I am going to look for this more often. It comes in white or natural.
I'm using variegated thread which is really fun, it's called "pastel" but the colors look a little brighter on the white fabric.
The thread was giving me tension issues on the bottom for awhile and I did everything I could think of; adjusted the tension up, down. Put in a new needle. Re-threaded the machine. Finally I re-threaded the bobbin. I guess that was it, no tension problem!
I hope to post the finished quilt soon but it's been a long week at work so I've been too tired at night to sew.
You can get an idea of the thread in this last photo.
