Iím working on the marking for quilting the Amish nine-bar at the moment (see picture posts) and ended up with having a couple questions you all might be able to answer for me:
First off, I ended up with GŁtermann instead of the Coats and Clark I usually use, simply because C & C didnít have matching hand quilting thread. I did see some (C & C) machine quilting thread that would have matched but was unsure what the real difference was so opted out. Would that have worked? Isnít thread thread in the long run?
Secondly Iím still trying to figure out a decent approach to quilting cables. Vines are easy because of the continuous running line but cables kind of lap over in a way that baffles me because there is a jump in the stitching. The only thing I can thing to do is to run the thread underneath to each new entry point. Does that make any sense?
It all Ďlooksí so easy, yikes!
