Trumpet Stars Revisited...

(Click on picture for a larger view)

This week, I've managed to get a bit of appliqué done on my Trumpet Stars. I'm machine appliquéing them using a very small zig zig stitch on my machine (1.0 stitch length and 1.0 width) and instead of using YLI invisible thread I'm using matching cotton thread. This is the first time I've used cotton thread to machine appliqué and I have to say I really like the results. The finish is softer to the touch and somehow I'm comforted in knowing that everything is 100% cotton.

Very nice Jane. Any chance of you going to the Birmingham quilt show? I'll be there (all the way from Canada) on August 17th from 10.00AM to 5.00PM.
