Part 4: 125th Anniversary Quilt – Border Side Triangles with Embroidery
This has been my most challenging part ever. I have been doing all of the projects parts in one month as my kit was one of the ones backordered. (January) I wanted to learn all the tips and techniques I could and doing the quilt-a-long was the way to learn. I did the embroidery using the template and instructions provided in my jumbo hoop. The challenge was that my metallic thread was not cooperating, as in past parts. It was on a spool type so I again rested a lot and held the thread out at an angle for each triangle so that my thread would not break. Guess I got tired as two corner side triangles were accidently taken out of the hoop before the final optional embroidery with 101 thread. I decided to have unique corner triangles on opposite corners. On the last paisley design, I ran out of thread. My shop was out but they had a sample metallic thread that matched my color and so I went home to complete the embroidery. WOW, this spool had the thread coming off like cone thread or Isacord thread and I did not have to sit and hold the thread out to keep thread from breaking. This is such a beautiful side triangle. cant wait to put top together. YT
