Back some time ago I started my Bending Tree wall hanging (see my featured post). I finally picked it up last week and finished it.
I purchased a large stash of rayon thread a month or two ago. They were on sale for buy 3 and get 3 free. I like it for machine appliqué, the shine is really nice. However, I have learned not to use it in the bobbin. I stick to a 50wt cotton thread in a close shade. I found that the tension and stitches were much better.
Lots of machine appliqué of the leaves. Not sure if I prefer the variegated or solid thread colors.
Now down to the quilting. Just a simple outlining around the stems.
I decided on the background quilting to use a modified fan quilting that matches the print on the background fabric.
And I have a finish this week at last.
