I have been practicing my FMQ and decided to give it a shot with silk thread. This is an example with the YLI thread, but I also used Kimono in my Horizon and both worked beautifully. Then put in some Aurifil at the bottom in a different color just to see side by side any differences. Used the silk in the bobbin as well.
Now here's my dilemma. This is my first quilt - a sampler still not finished b/c I can't decide how to quilt it. I was thinking of ordering some stencils and give hand quilting a go, but now I'm loving the silk. Actually I have two of these samplers. I haven't sandwiched the other one yet - different colors. So, what do you all think? Maybe a little of both. Do hand on one and fmq on the other? Quilting ideas desired.
