|October Challenge - Teri Lucas|
This is my sample for Teri Lucas' s Challenge for October 2012 FMQ Challenge at Insights from SewCalGal.
I started with drawing a sketch.
Teri suggested silk with cotton and wool batting, all of which I had, so I made my sandwich, marked my square and gathered up as many different kinds of threads that I thought would work for this project. I changed thread with each design but used Bottom Line only in the bobbin.
Here's a couple of close-ups:
Teri suggested using the rest of our piece for further experimenting, so I did a practice run of a feather design that I want to use on a quilt I'm currently quilting.
I tried some echo quilting on one side but did not care for it.

This is Diane Gaudynski's design that she calls Diane-shiko which I just love doing it and really like how it sets off other designs.
